This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

SECOND 

INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF MAYOR 

PEHR G. HOLMES 

Mbghanigs Hall, Janxjart 7, 1918 



Gentlemen of the City Council: — 

TT 7E meet for the inaugural exercises this year 
^ ^ under conditions without parallel in the history 
of an American municipality. Our city government is 
being inducted into office when practically the whole 
world is at war. Our nation^ peace-loving and tolerant, 
has been forced into the struggle by most unnatural 
crimes of Prussianism.. Now to city and to individual 
alike comes a duty, an obligation and a work such as 
we have never before experienced — ^which has been 
but faintly approximated in other wars of the United 
States. Ck>nfronting us is a double duty at this time 
— ^we must serve as the many needs of our country 
dictate, and we must strive, so far as it is practicable 
to bend our efforts in that direction, to maintain and 
enlarge upon the scope of our civic efficiency. 

Already unprecedented demands have been made 
upon the people in the interests of the coimtry. It is 
only reasonable to believe — ^and certainly wisdom 
dictates we should map our future action with such 
expectation in view — ^that even heavier demands may 
come during the present year.

10 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. 

IT is most natural that we should cherish deeply the 
interests of the city of Worcester, that we should be 
jealous of its welfare and its advancement, that our 
first hasty impulses should lead us to consider it above 
other things. But under present conditions such 
things must not be. Our better, our broader natures, 
tell us that, first of all and above every other considera- 
tion, we must lend willing ears to the call of country. 
We must give freely and willingly, in the most liberal 
measure, of whatever it may call for or demand. In 
times such as these, every aim and ambition of city 
and individual that does not serve absolutely the cause 
in which we are enlisted must be subordinated, with- 
out demur or hesitation, to the needs of our country. 
We cannot stint the measure of our support in the 
slightest degree and do our duty. We cannot take up 
the great task in a half-hearted manner and truly 
feel that we have fulfilled those most sacred obligations 
of citizenship which rest upon every American. If 
our only thought is of the city and our own aims, we 
shall have stinted the measure of our support to the 
government, and we shall be working half-heartedly 
for the cause of humanity which the armed forces of 
our country are upholding. 

I DO NOT for a moment mean to say or seek to inti- 
mate that just needs of the city should or must be 
rejected in a wholesale manner from our consideration. 
I cannot at this time see any logical reason why they 
should be. However, I do say, flatly and without

MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 11 

equivocatioiiy that unessential things should be and 
must be cast entirely out of consideration. That 
which is truly essential can^ as conditions permit, 
properly receive our earnest consideration. But that 
which is not must receive no place in our deliberations. 
In devoting attention to essential things, we shall 
be moving to not only maintain , but, let us hope, to 
increase our civic efficiency. Maintenance of civic 
efficiency during the war is exactly what the head of 
this nation asks of us. By pursuing a program with 
relation to the city wherein only essential things have 
a place, we shall be in a position where the maximum 
of our resources and endeavors can be diverted to 
channels helpful to the government in the prosecution 
of the war. That is where they belong. 

'T^HERE has come to me most reliable information 
■^ that a government request, or a request having the 
strong sanction of the government, will be made in 
a short time to cities urging them to adopt a policy of 
utmost conservatism this year. This request, I am 
informed, will be with special reference to public work 
requiring loans. The reason for such a request is two- 
fold. First, negotiation of loans called for in a pro- 
gram of public work other than conservative would 
place the city in direct financial competition with the 
government. Second, carrying on extensive public 
work would place the city in competition with the 
government for labor. This is an even stronger reason 
than that of finances why the city should not under-

12 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. 

take extended public works requiring a large amount 
of labor. I approve such a policy most heartily under 
conditions as they now are, and have been for the past 
year. It is practically such a policy as Worcester has 
adhered to diuing the year just closed. For most 
obvious reasons, in the year just passed, I urged con- 
servatism in municipal affairs, and for the present year 
I would again lu^ge it even more strongly. 

'TpHIS war is not merely a war of armies. It is a war 
-^ of nations. Our efforts as a municipality and as in- 
dividuals must necessarily be directed so that they will 
aid and strengthen oiu* government's financial and labor 
program. This is our responsibility, our great responsi- 
bility, and we must meet it as city officials. Anything 
to the contrary will delay and retard the government 
in its program. 

Politics, parties and partisanship and all their 
trappings, as we have known them, must be driven 
with relentless hand from all our activities. Selfish 
individual aims as well as selfish municipal aims should 
not be allowed to impair oiu* better judgment in these 
days. There is far more at stake than our individual 
or municipal aims. Our whole country, our self- 
preservation, compels the true American to give every 
ounce of energy and direct every effort toward the 
accomplishment of that task which is infinitely greater 
than we at first realized — greater, perhaps, than we 
even now fully comprehend. There must be no 
division of effort. That which would distract our at-

MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 13 

tention from the supreme task at hand must be re- 
garded as imworthy and dangerous — ^as unworthy and 
dangerous as one who would forget the duty which 
confronts him and seek to further a petty aim or 
ambition at the expense of the common cause. 

To us it can be a source of pride that Worcester has 
served loyally and well in this struggle. It has given 
liberally of its money and liberally of that which is 
infinitely more precious, its young manhood. In both 
respects it has established a record which but few cities 
can equal. It is for us, strong in our pride and mighty 
in our determination, to go on with this work, to add 
our blows to the unity of blows being struck for 
hiunanity and right, to salve the wounds that war may 
cause and to alleviate suffering that may come in its 
train. 

Til rORLD events have moved rapidly during the last 
^ ^ three years. They are moving now with such 
rapidity and in such undreamed of channels that it is 
impossible for any one to predict successfully what the 
future will bring forth — ^what demands it will make upon 
us. Signs of the times, which once afforded a basis upon 
which fairly reliable conjectures might be based, are 
now without value. Indications that were once fol- 
lowed with some degree of certainty as to ultimate 
developments are now worthless. 

Therefore, with the trend of future events imcer- 
tain as to the demands which may be made upon all, 
I deem it advisable on this occasion to make but few

recommendations for your consideration. I shall con- 
fine these to such things as I consider reason and good 
policy dictate that we should take up during the present 
year. From time to time, if conditions seem to war- 
rant, or as needs may make it imperative, I shall 
lay before you for your consideration other recom- 
mendations. 

I WOULD recommend that you give most careful 
and earnest consideration to housing problems 
in connection with our public school system. It is 
plain that more schoolhouses should be built during 
the present year to properly accommodate the ever 
increasing number of children who attend our schools. 
At least two or three new buildings will be necessary 
this year, if there is to be sufficient room to relieve 
crowded conditions and meet further demands for 
space that are inevitable. I ask that this phase of our 
educational program receive your most careful consid- 
eration and that you devote close attention to deter- 
mining where additional buildings may be built with 
the greatest degree of efficiency and service. 

IT is most essential in normal times, and doubly so 
now, that fire protection should be maintained 
at the highest degree of efficiency. In addition to 
attention which must be given property in general, 
special protection must be given and every effort taken 
to safeguard any building, any supplies or any material 
vital to the prosecution of this war. Fires in this connec-

mayor's address. 15 

tion have proved in other places to be deadly enemies. 
Therefore, I would ask that you consider the matter 
of laying larger water pipes in certain sections as 
a step toward better fire protection, and also to insure 
a more adequate supply of water for general use. At 
least two pieces of motor apparatus should be added 
to our fire department this year to place it on the 
most efficient basis. The addition of such apparatus 
means not only the highest efficiency but also the 
greatest economy. 

T)ROVISION for carrying on work at the Pine Hill 
-■- reservoir has been made by the outgoing city 
council. An appropriation sufficient to keep work in 
progress there for a considerable time has been made. 
Work on this basin, which will restrain water in suf- 
ficient volume to practically double our present 
supply, must be pushed this year with utmost vigor, 
and I ask that city council give this work their close 
attention. Much depends on this basin as to the 
future supply of water for a rapidly growing city. 

XT seems advisable to consider the acquisition of 
^ land in the rear of the pubUc Ubrary building on 
Elm Street and also land and an old building to the 
east of the plot of land which I mention. I do not 
mention this necessarily with an idea that an additional 
building should be built this year for library purposes, 
but rather with the idea that the land should be 
acquired with an eye to future development of library

facilities. The land could be secured now at a reason- 
able cost; later it might not be available. To enlarge 
our present library quarters through use of this land 
would mean a tremendous saving over securing a 
site elsewhere and erecting a new building. 

THE new Lake bridge, a beautiful and thoroughly 
useful structure, is fast nearing completion. It 
should be completed early in the spring. As soon as the 
expense of building this bridge is apportioned by 
decree of the Court, it will be necessary for the city 
to meet its part of the financial obligation which con- 
struction of the bridge involves. The city's share of 
cost in construction of the bridge will probably figiu'e 
at about $145,000, and I ask that you consider steps 
toward meeting this obligation on our part. 

AS the passage of time is recorded by the calendar, 
we have just entered upon another year. But 
with the destinies of nations being shaped, with the 
fate of humanity at issue, with the future of mankind 
involved, we are entering upon an epochal period. 
It is in times such as these that men and nations are 
tested — such times as these that true metal stands 
out in shining contrast to that which is base. 

There can be no doubt as to the outcome. Victory, 
victory with honor and with justice for all men, will 
crown the effort of our arms and of that body of 
people who serve at home, the great and important 
army behind the lines. It is for us to face the new

year with high hearts and with a fine determination 
that our every effort, our every aim, come what may, 
shall be directed with unflagging energy to hasten the 
day of that victory. With it shall come for mankind 
a newer and a better order of things, light where there 
has been darkness, liberty where there has been op- 
pression.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CITY 
MESSENGER 



Gentlemen of the City Council of Worcester: — 

The City Messenger begs leave to report that during the 
past year the total amount appropriated for his department 
was $88,442.14; total expended $38,406.77, leaving an un- 
expended balance of $35.37. 

Stock on hand per inventory at close of the year was 
$700.54 made up of — stamps and postals, $14.43; car tickets, 
$14.70; blank Jbooks and stationery, $229.62; penholders and 

Eencils, $203.77; ink and mucilage, $23.13; typewriter rib- 
ons and carbons, $137.61; sundries, $77.28. 

The question of parking automobiles on the mall in the 
rear of the City Hall building has been considered by the City 
Messenger from various angles and several plans have been 
explained. It is apparent that in order to enforce anything 
like a system of parking cars in this locality, that the services 
of a representative of this department, on duty on the mall 
at the busy hours of the day, would be required. I am of the 
opinion that the system of parking cars, the so-called Detroit 
diagonal system, should be given a trial here and for this 
an appropriation should be made, for the services of an 
extra man for this duty part of the year. The mall is 24 feet 
wide and allowing 15 feet for parking the cars diagonally on 
part of the mall, would leave a driveway of 9 feet for passing. 

The revenue received by the City Messenger Department 
during 1917 shows an increase of over $600.00 over that of 
the preceding year. 

The general high prices during the past year have been felt 
at City Hall as everywhere else, and little funds have been 
available for the repair of furniture in the City Hall building. 

The janitorial force has kept the interior of the building 
up to its usual high degree of cleanliness and efficient janitor 
service, receiving the compliments of many visitors to Wor- 
cester. It would seem that the municipal building has been 
visited in 1917 by a greater volume of people than ever, 
resulting in part from the war activities. Information sought 
by numberless people from this department has been fur- 
nished to the extent of our resources.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN 



To the Board of Directors: 

Gentlemen: Since our entrance into the great war has 
necessarily postponed plans for a new building, so urgently 
needed, every effort must be made to render our present 
quarters as efficient as possible. From the circulation de- 
partment comes now the loudest call for expansion, a call 
which simply must be answered. 

Our plan is to erect a complete partition across the south- 
ern part of the great newspaper room, and to use the area 
thus reclaimed for a new arts and science department, to 
contain all the 9,000 books in these classes, with the necessary 
shelving, tables, catalog and permanent attendant. Thus 
we may create a truly adequate department, with proper 
supervision, where the mechanics and artisans of our city 
can make a systematic and intelligent use of our excellent 
but hitherto somewhat neglected resources in these highly 
important lines of research. The expense will involve about 
$1,300, but it is now eighteen years since the city has granted 
any funds for expansion at the main building, and such ex- 
pansion is simply imperative. Our estimates include an 
appropriation for this purpose and the plan has received the 
endorsement of the building committee. 

In spite of crowded conditions our home and school cir- 
culation as a whole has increased from 496,708 to 507,187, 
a gain of 10,479. The three branches show a really substan- 
tial gain from 167,941 to 190,450; 22,509 or more than 13%. 
The number of active borrowers for the whole library has 
risen from 33,174 to 33,624, our rigid rules of registration 
keeping on our books only those who have actually used 
their cards within three years. 

As the payment of a living wage to all full-time employees 
is the first obvious duty of a city institution, it is earnestly 
hoped that the just, but moderate recommendations of the 
finance committee will be accepted without change, both by 
this board and also by the mayor and city government. A 
petition signed by all the staff sets forth the impossibility 
of meeting the continually rising cost of all the necessaries 
of life, with the salaries now received by the majority of the 
staff, whose weekly income, excepting only the librarian,

averages less than $12.50. An itemized financial statement 
forms the first appendix of this report. 

Among the duties of the library committee is the conduct 
of the annual examination for library assistants. Although 
some promising candidates appeared at the November 
examination, the committee is not fully satisfied with the 
results and believes that some thought should be given to 
the question of a training class from which regular members 
of the staff might be recruited. Again our crowded condi- 
tions make the establishment of such a class apparently 
impracticable, but the matter should have the careful con- 
sideration of the incoming committee. 

A duplicate pay collection is an important feature of many 
progressive libraries, and has been discussed at several meet- 
ings, but no decision has been reached. Objections are 
chiefly academic and the cost of installation is practically 
negligible. 

The library's bibliographical work has had much attention 
and encouragement from this committee. All four depart- 
ments have collaborated in making lists, longer or shorter, 
on the following subjects: Aids to thrift and happiness; 
vegetable gardens; healthful thought or mental healing; 
Belgium; Thanksgiving; Red Cross; vacation reading; 
sermon helps, etc. As a library is known outside chiefly 
from its publications, it is hoped that this work may be 
steadily advanced in future years. 

Our magazine room is crowded and unattractive, but no 
material expansion is possible here. An additional maga- 
zine-rack, placed in the ladies' reading room, would afford 
some relief and its purchase is strongly recommended. The 
list of periodicals subscribed for is scrutinized annually and 
pruned when necessary. So many important journals are 
continually appearing that no substantial reduction in the 
aggregate is possible, the whole number, including news- 
papers,being now 569 as compared with 594 last year. 

Branch libraries have flourished, as witnessed by the gain 
in circulation of 13 per cent. As miniature civic centers their 
activities are of special interest and value; surgical dressings 
committees, food economy demonstrators, parent teachers' 
associations, boys' and girls' clubs being among the organiza- 
tions that have regularly and profitably used the community 
rooms. 

Nearly four years have passed since the opening of the 
branches and these beautiful buildings should not be allowed 
to deteriorate through neglect. Inside finish, walls, ceilings 
and masonry need attention in many cases. At Greendale 
the important work of weatherstripping was performed in 
the early autumn.

The purchase for less than $60 of a balopticon, which will 
hold both lantern-slides and picture-postals, should act as a 
stimulus to our extension work both at the branch libraries 
and from the central buildings. 

The principal gift received at any branch was a beautiful 
20-foot flagpole at Quinsigamond, presented and erected at 
their expense, by the American Steel & Wire Co., donors also 
of the branch library site. 

Routine work on Elm Street has been carried on cheerfully 
under difficult conditions. The extension work of the cir- 
culation department has shown an encouraging gain, in the 
aggregate, but the Grafton Square delivery station has not 
justified its existence for some time, and its discontinuance, 
on January 1st next, is herewith recommended. Many 
years' experience shows that much better results are achieved 
in extension work when library assistants are present to 
direct it. 

The rearrangement of our foreign book section has been 
the most important special work of the circulation depart- 
ment. Fact-books have now been added to fiction on the 
shelves, in all foreign languages, at a great expense of care, 
time and labor, but the appreciation as shown by many of 
our patrons is a gratifying and ample reward. 

Devotion to war work has probably been the chief factor 
to reduce, by a small per cent., the patronage of the reference 
department, though an increase in the holiday use is noted. 
For the first time this department has been closed on the 
Fourth of July and Christmas Day. This change has 
caused no adverse criticism and has enabled the staff to 
enjoy two of the most valued of our holidays. Thanksgiving 
Day should be added next year. 

An index to the incunabula (or books printed before 
1500) in the United States shows that five of the twenty-one 
such books owned by us are probably unique in America. 

Our own war work has consisted chiefly in sending some 
3,000 books and 1,600 magazines to Camp Devens; in making 
soldiers' scrapbooks at the branch libraries, and in lending 
community rooms to war relief societies. Five of our male 
attendants have left to enlist in the federal service. In the 
nation-wide " Camp Library Week," we took our part and 
exceeded the $100 which the staff promised as its gift towards 
Worcester's $8,000 quota. 

The children's department has shown a gain of over 5% 
in circulation. The hard wear to which their collection of 
books is subjected may be judged from the fact that 22% 
of the books in the adult and children's departments together 
carries 48% of the circulation. The school-deposit work, in

which some very lively branch library activity is carried on 
weekly at various grammar schools, is an outstanding fea- 
ture. Increasing cost of books, binding and mending ma- 
terials makes a liberal book allowance essential for the 
efficiency of this and other departments. 

The cataloguers have fiunished much needful and expert 
assistance in the reorganization of the foreign book collec- 
tion mentioned in an earlier paragraph. Because their work 
makes no showing to the superficial observer, its importance 
should not be discounted. Much of the cataloguer's work, 
in fact, is irksome and monotonous to such a degree that 
compensations sometimes are found only in its transcendant 
importance. 

Three junior assistants have resigned since the presenta- 
tion of my last report: Miss Bartlett from the children's 
department to join the staff of the Newton Library; Miss 
Jones from the reference to accept a business position, and 
Miss M. T. Murphy from Greendale, to enter a convent. 
The continued zeal and efficiency shown by all the staff in 
their discharge of duty are deserving of highest praise. My 
heartiest thanks are due to you, gentlemen of the Board of 
Directors, for many acts of courtesy and cordial support, and 
particularly to your president for his unfailing readiness to 
give attention to my many requests; for much valued advice 
furnished, and especially for the substantial and sympa- 
thetic encouragement which our Camp Library Week, not an 
over-popular cause, received from him. For the privilege 
of serving the people of Worcester as City Librarian for the 
past nine years I am likewise profoundly thankful.

REPORT OP THE COMMISSIONERS OF 

HOPE CEMETERY FOR THE YEAR 

ENDING NOVEMBER 30, 1917 



To the Honorable Pehr G. Holmes, Mayor, and the City Counr 
cil of Worcester, Mass.: 

The Commissioners of Hope Cemetery herewith submit 
their report for the year ending November 30, 1917. 

During the year there have been eight hundred and ten 
burials. Sixteen services have been held in Curtis Chapel. 
Thirty-seven vaults have been constructed and one hundred 
and eighty-two foundations laid for monuments and head- 
stones. Eighty-three markers have been set. Nine hun- 
dred and forty-nine lots not under perpetual care have been 
cared for at the expense of the owners. Thirty-nine old lots 
have been put under perpetual care during the year. Two 
hundred and fifteen graves of Civil War soldiers not pre- 
viously provided for have been cared for during the year. 

The advent of spring usually finds the grounds sadly in 
need of attention; the litter of winter must be removed, 
and the inroads of traffic over the avenues is usually very 
apparent. These conditions necessarily call for the labor 
of a considerable number of men for several weeks before 
more strictly decorative features can be given any consid- 
eration. The past year has been no exception in this particu- 
lar. Automobiles are the direct occasion of new and serious 
problems affecting the permanent maintenance of the 
avenues. These are having the thoughtful consideration 
of the Commissioners as fast as they appear. 

Not the usual amount of new work has been done this 
year owing to the shortage of help, the regular force for the 
most part being fully employed in the necessary upkeep of 
the grounds. Another year considerable grading will have 
to be done, and if the necessary help cannot be secured 
for this purpose it may be necessary to contract the work 
to some responsible party. The grounds are being extended 
from year to year, and there is an increasing demand for 
small lots which will have to be provided for. It may be 
necessary to employ more men during the winter months 
to do the grading required for single graves, especially during 
the coming year.

The curbing around the Ash worth and Jones lot which has 
been in place for many years has been reset, the work 
having been done by our regular force at a comparatively 
small expense. 

About the usual number of cement walks have been built 
in different parts of the cemetery, and, in general, the 
grounds have been maintained to the satisfaction of the 
Commissioners and of the lot owners. 

A feature of permanent value and of special significance 
to every one having pride in the cemetery and its appoint- 
ments, which calls for special mention in this report, is the 
addition of the Memorial entrance gates near Curtis Chapel, 
the gift of the late Mrs. Solomon Nixon, who, by will, pro- 
vided the fund for their erection. The design for this 
memorial was the production of The Gorham Company, 
of New York; the stone was furnished by The Norcross 
Company, of Worcester; the iron work was provided and 
installed by The Gorham Company, and the engineering 
department of the City of Worcester, under the supervision 
of Frederick A. McClure, was responsible for the details of 
construction. The gate is altogether a most creditable 
production artistically, and a fitting memorial to the 
generous donor no less than to her husband, in whose name 
the gift was made. A suitable bronze tablet has been placed 
as a permanent acknowledgment of the gratitude of the 
citizens of Worcester. 

In order to more fully realize the purpose of the donor of 
the gates, owing to the increased cost of construction after 
the estimate was made upon which the amount of the gift 
was based, the legacy of $4,500 was supplemented by an 
appropriation of $1,700 by the City Council, the net cost 
of the structure being $6,200. 

Suitable shrubbery is to be placed around this memorial 
entrance, which, with new curbing from the gate to the 
chapel, and some additional cement walks, will serve to give 
this section of the cemetery a decidedly attractive setting. 
Electric lights will soon be installed over this entrance. It 
has been suggested that the name of the cemetery be placed 
over the main entrance, thus completing the necessary 
details of this most admirable acquisition. 

There have been many creditable monuments erected 
during the year. Special mention may properly be made of 
those on lots owned by Daniel Harrington, J. Chester 
Pierce, Warren Alexander, Mary Adams, Walter J. Stone, 
Albert A. Gordon, Jr., and William Shumway.

REPORT OP STREET LIGHTING 
DEPARTMENT 



To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester: 

The report of the Superintendent of Lighting Streets for 
the year ending November 30, 1917, is herewith presented. 

The general business situation, and conditions which 
have obtained during the period covered by this report, 
have somewhat retarded the systematic development of our 
lighting service. The committee on lighting streets con- 
sidered it inadvisable to report any additional luminous 
arcs, and the financial condition of the city rendered any 
considerable addition of small lights in the outskirts of the 
city impossible. So far as we have endeavored to light 
the streets, they are extremely well cared for, and, in a large 
part of the city, the need to-day is for a standardization 
of the existing service rather than a considerable enlarge- 
ment of it. 

In view of the difficulty of procuring coal, it may become 
necessary to reduce, temporarily, the number of lights in 
service. If it should become necessary, the reduction will 
be made in the territory most thinly inhabited and on the 
streets least used as thoroughfares. We are advised by the 
Electric Light Company that, for the present at least, 
they will not be obliged to ask for a reduction in the number 
of street lamps, but plans are being made for a just and 
reasonable reduction should any reduction in the service 
become necessary. 

In the matter of the proper lighting of Franklin Street 
bridge under the Boston and Albany, and New York, 
New Haven and Hartford Railroads, the secretary of the 
Chamber of Commerce, under date of October 31st, wrote 
complaining of ''the lack of illumination" under this bridge. 
He was advised, under date of November 2nd, as to the 
conditions which obtain on Franklin Street at this point and 
the difficulty of switching this particular group of lamps 
on or off in advance of the schedule time. It was suggested 
that painting the walls and lower flooring of the bridge 
with white paint would afford temporary relief. The facts 
in this matter are, that the bridge is served with 4-600 
watt arcs and is thoroughly lighted during the schedule 
hours, but it can well happen that on a dark, cloudy after-

310 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72, [4 

noon before lighting time, or on a stormy morning after the 
lamps are turned out there may be, for an hour or so, some 
just cause for complaint. This matter has been carefully 
considered, and the only practical method of obviating the 
difficulty alluded to seems to be in running a separate cir- 
cuit, for the use of the lamps under this bridge, to be con- 
trolled from the new substation of the Electric Light Com- 
pany on Grafton Street, as a change in the present method 
of lighting the bridge would cost about four thousand 
dollars, while the change above noted can be made for 
practically one fourth of that amount, and would be more 
easily handled from Grafton Street than from Chase Court. 
The matter will receive prompt attention as soon as the 
substation referred to is finished. 

All the additional street lights ordered by the City 
Council during the year 1917 are in commission, with the 
exception of those under the order of October 25th, existing 
conditions as to labor and materials rendering it impossible 
to install the lamps authorized by this order at the present 
writing. It is hoped and expected that these additional 
lamps will be put in commission not later than April 1, 1918. 
The recommendations made in the report of this department 
for the year 1916 for the extension of the luminous arc serv- 
ice are respectfully renewed, and the magnetite arcs to be 
displaced under the above plan located in accordance with 
the suggestions of the 1916 report. 

The total street service of the city amounts to 4,838 
lamps, 590-520 watt luminous arcs, 1,121-400 watt magne- 
tite arcs, 2,217-100 candle and 291-80 candle tungstens, 
592 single upright and 27 double inverted Welsbach gas 
lamps. 

The total cost of the street lighting service for the year 
1917 amounts to $192,213.56 as shown in the following 
table:

Luminous Arcs 

The luminous arc service has proven an extremely valua- 
ble asset to Worcester, not only in properly lighting the 
busy part of the city but in turning and directing the tide*of 
foot travel through different streets and thereby enlarging 
our mercantile territory. The question of finance should 
be the only consideration in extending this service each 
year, along the lines already laid out, to ultimately cover the 
entire present and inevitable business section of Worcester. 
The growth of Worcester's business must, from the geogra- 
phical construction of the town, be easterly and south- 
easterly, and it would seem to be good business policy to be 
well in advance of the procession in this matter. 

The entire luminous arc service is supplied from under- 
ground construction and is divided into two classes — ^287 
burned 4,000 hours and 303 burned 2500 hours per lamp 
year, the locations being so arranged that, while the entire 
number is in commission until 1 A. M., something over half 
of the total is cut off at that hour. 

The following table shows the location of the lamps of 
this type added during the year.

Tungsten Lights 



$48,736.31 



The tungsten service consists of 2,217-100 and 291-80 
candle lamps and is used almost entirely on the thorough- 
fares leading to the city and located beyond the point 
where extreme lighting is necessary, in the residence districts 
and short streets where but little light is needed for the 
safety of those using the streets. 

The contract price for these lamps is $16.32 for 80 candle 
overhead, $21.00 for 80 candle underground, $17.00 for 100 
candle overhead and $21.70 for 100 candle underground 
construction. The entire number is burned 4000 hours 
per year. The additions and discontinuances made during

Gas Welsbachs 



But little change has been made in the number or location 
of the gas Welsbachs used in this city, the principal one 
being the installation of a few additional double inverted 
lamps. The location of these lamps is confined almost 
entirely to the residence districts and on streets where 
electricity is not available because of foliage and other 
conditions. The changes in location, additions and dis-

These lamps are contracted for with the Welsbach Street 
Lighting Company of America who pay for the gas used 
and maintain the lamps in proper condition, the city in- 
stalling and owning the posts and riser pipes. The contract 
for these lamps has a considerable time yet to run and it is 
curious that, under the selling scale recently adopted by 
the Worcester Gas Light Company, our net cost under the 
contract is smaller than at the old figiu-es. 

The maintenance cost of this branch of the service for the 
year under consideration amounts to $14,784.45 as shown 
in the following table.

lighting and caring for the fire alarm signals is paid this de- 

f^artment by the fire department and amounts to $147.79 
or the year 1917. 

It has been necessary to remove a considerable number 
of dead posts during the year, the cost of which amounts to 
$56.14, and the street construction and relocation of gas 
Welsbachs, for which the city is liable under our contract, 
cost $409.67 for the period covered by this report. 

The installation of lights in the parks and playgrounds 
maintained by this department and paid for by the Parks 
Commission remains as last year, — three magnetite arcs, 
sixteen tungstens and one gas Welsbach, and cost $524.80 
for the year. 

The following table shows the maintenance cost of the 
different classes of lamps in service, the number of nights and 
average hours per night burned, and the cost of one lamp 
and total cost of each type of lamp for the year. This cost 
is made by adding to the contract price the proper propor- 
tion of overhead charges and such classified items of expense 
as are chargeable to the different classes of lamps in use.

SUPERVISOR OF WIRES 



To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester: — 

The report of the Supervisor of Wires for the year ending 
November 30, 1917, is herewith presented. 

The general system of inspection in Worcester, adopted 
at the organization of the department, has been continued 
in force during this year. Our work begins upon notice from 
the different contractors and is finished when the installation 
is entirely complete and ready for service, safe for the 
owner, and user, and in accordance with the requirements 
of the National Code and special regulations of this depart- 
ment. 

It would greatly simplify the work, and increase the use- 
fulness of the department, if the legislation referred to in 
our report of 1916, requiring contractors to obtain a permit 
before beginning work, and that all plans and specifications 
for new or additional construction be examined and ap- 
proved by this department before the contracts were let, 
were enacted. Such an addition to the ordinance would 
prevent frequent disputes as to proper construction, correct 
errors, often made by inexperienced contractors, lessen 
the final cost of installation in many instances, and generally 
protect the owner in very many ways. 

The matter of collecting fees for inspection is simply a 
plain business proposition and would, without entailing any 
financial hardship whatever, not only simplify the work of 
inspection, reduce the number of unnecessary trips, but 
put the department very nearly on a self-supporting basis. 
Your attention is called to this matter and consideration 
of the proposed addition to the ordinance respectfully 
requested. 

During the fiscal year 1917, 2512 original notices of new or 
additional work have been sent to this department, have 
received prompt attention, and permits for their use have 
been sent to the Electric Light Company, or to the owners 
if it were an isolated plant. 

The total number of permits issued during the year is 
3,098, something over 500 of them being final inspections 
on installations where the rough work had been previously 
approved but no fixtures installed. The year's experience 
with automobiles for our inspectors has proven the wisdom

of the change, as the cost to the city per permit issued 
has been reduced about 33 cents below the average cost for 
the preceding eight years.

The outside inspections made during the year have dis- 
closed but comparatively few defects in construction, due 
very largely to the fact that all companies using outside 
lines in Worcester are burying their wires as rapidly as 
possible. The Worcester Electric Light Company has taken 
down forty miles of wire and six hundred poles, and the 
New England Telephone and Telegraph Company one 
hundred miles of wire and seventy-five poles during the 
period covered by this report. 

The expenses of the department for the year 1917 amount 
to $4,728.28, as per the following table.

The expenses of the Wire Commission for the year amount 
to $40.29 for advertising and preparing plans of the pre- 
scribed district for 1917. The territory prescribed by this 
commission begins at the northerly side of Franklin Street 
at a point formed by the extension of the easterly line of 
Lyon Street, thence easterly on the northerly line of Franklin 
Street and the southerly side of Bloomingdale Road to the 
two mile circle, thence northerly on the two mile circle to

the northerly line of Belmont Street, thence westerly on the 
northerly line of Belmont Street to a point opposite the 
westerly line of East Park, thence by the westerly line of 
East Park and the easterly line of Lyon Street extended to 
the point of beginning. 

The city property in charge of this department amounts 
to $997.00 as per the following table. 

Testing instruments $75 .00 

Ladders, climbing irons and small tools 10 .00 

Typewriter 100.00 

Badges, gauges, etc 12 .00 

Automobiles 800.00 

1997.00 

No additional underground locations have been granted 
by the wire commission during the year, owing to the 
fact that the territory prescribed had been largely covered 
by advance locations granted in previous years and the 
financial condition of the different companies interested.

EEPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OP THE 

POOR 



To His Honor the Mayor and the Honorable City Council: 

Gentlemen: In compliance with the City Ordinances 
the Overseers of the Poor herewith respectfully submit 
their annual report for the fiscal year closing November 
30, 1917. 

In reviewing the work carried on by this board during 
the past year it is hoped that facts may be brought out 
that may be of interest to the citizens of our city and 
others. 

The work of the department is ever increasing in scope 
and importance. While the number of families receiving 
relief from the oflSce of the Overseers of the Poor does not 
always grow from one year to another, yet, during recent 
years expenses seem to be increasing from year to year due 
to one cause or another, but chiefly due to the fact that 
deeper social interest is being taken in each family assisted, 
which naturally results in a clearer conception of conditions 
as they really are, and our eyes are made to behold the 
necessity for the provision of more adequate relief than 
ever before in the history of public Out-Door Relief. 

The number of families aided during 1917 was less than 
the year preceding, but expenses were slightly more. The 
increased cost of commodities was largely responsible for 
the added expense. 

In order to properly care for the needs of the poor, it is 
essential that conditions in each family be studied and 
treated individually, and the amount of aid determined 
on the merits of the case, as no two cases are exactly alike; 
consequently no specified amount can be decided upon in 
advance for certain classes of cases. 

Most of the distress in families to which our attention is 
called is occasioned by the death of the father, but of course 
that is, in many instances, only the immediate cause, the 
primary cause being something else — as for instance intem- 
perance or some other vice. 

Placing op Children 

Owing to failure of support by parents, who may have 
become deceased or having deserted, it quite frequently

happens that we are obliged to assume the burden of caring 
for children. In such instances, if there is no settlement, 
the youngsters are committed to the State Board of Charity 
as neglected or dependent children, and subsequently are 
placed out either in some institution or private homes. 
However, if settlement appears to be Worcester, the children 
are as a rule placed with respectable families to be boarded 
by the city at a weekly rate agreed upon. Dependent 
children who are mentally or physically deficient are com- 
mitted to the one most suitable of the various private or 
state institutions and expense charged to place of settlement. 
The law forbids keeping children at the almshouse who are 
over two years of age, or, should the mother also be an in- 
mate of the institution, not over three years of age. Children 
are therefore kept at Home Farm only temporarily. At the 
present time we have numerous children for which board is 
being paid for in families. 



Groceries and Rent 



In taking account of the present conditions it is to be 
noticed that practically everything has advanced in cost 
and especially so with food-stuffs and rents. So although 
there is a marked business revival, it does not appear to be 
of sufficient degree to offset the increased cost of com- 
modities. Never, perhaps, in the history of this country 
has there been such a state of affairs in the market of food- 
stuffs as exists at the present time. Eatables have increased 
more than 200% since the beginning of the war in many 
instances, and rents have been advanced 20% or more in 
many localities, with the probability that further increases 
are forthcoming. 

The groceries delivered to the needy families are furnished 
by two or three grocers whose prices are found to be the 
lowest among the dealers submitting bids each month and 
this arrangement is found to meet with satisfaction by 
both the board and the recipients of aid. During the past 
year, food supplies to the aggregate of $20,668.48 have been 
given. 

Attention is called to the following table which illustrates 
the increases for a period of fifteen months and were we to 
cite prices further back in the past we would find a more 
noticeable difference.

These figures show prices on December 1, 1917, to be

Fuel and Clothing 

It has been customary each year for the department to 
have coal delivered to the poor in one quarter ton lots by 
some dealer under contract, but owing to the gravity of the 
coal situation, dealers refused to submit bids last summer 
for delivery of coal. The coal is therefore bought this winter 
in the open market at a price fairly reasonable; although 
there has been a scarcity of coal, no dilBBculty is being ex- 
perienced in having our orders filled promptly. Wood is 
furnished in numerous cases to the amount of $1.00 and 
it is found that about 25% less wood is obtainable this 
year at the price. Coal and wood to the amount of $4,347.27 
have been given. 

An increased number of orders has been drawn on 
various stores for clothing furnished. In many instances 
we are able to obtain from persons interested in doing good, 
cast-oflF clothing of good wearing quality; $1,303.54 has been 
expended for clothing.

Housing 

The housing problem is becoming more and more serious, 
inasmuch as building operations are not by far keeping 
pace with the increasing population of the city. The great 
scarcity of vacant tenements has forced numerous families 
to share their tenements with others. 

The city is at present experiencing a rapid growth in its 
population, due largely to the prosperity of its varied 
industries which are busy, directly or indirectly, working 
on war orders. The water census taken the past summer 
credited the city with having over 187,000 inhabitants. 

There has been a notable influx of families from sur- 
rounding states, especially from Vermont and New Hamp- 
shire, and among these families are included many who 
arrive without any means to start a home, and they con- 
sequently resort to so-called light housekeeping by renting 
furnished rooms at a fairly high rental. It is surprising 
to note the vast number of families living in this manner, 
occupying from one to three rooms poorly furnished and 
pajdng from $2.00 to $6.00 per week which makes an ex- 
orbitant rent considering the accommodations. Apparentlv 
very few of these people are able to accumulate enough 
money with which to start housekeeping in the more con- 
venient and economical way, that of occupying a tenement 
with their own furniture. If building operations continue 
at the present low mark, the time may come in Worcester 
when all of the leading industrial concerns will have to face 
the necessity of providing housing facilities for their em- 
ployees. 

Conferences 

The clerk of the board was delegated to attend the Na- 
tional Conference of Charities and Correction (now National 
Conference of Social Work), which convened in Pittsburg, 
Pa., June 6-13, 1917. 

This conference exists to facilitate discussion of the prob- 
lems and methods of practical human improvement, to in- 
crease the efficiency of agencies and institutions devoted to 
this cause, and to disseminate information. The conference 
consists of seven permanent divisions devoted to the follow- 
ing subjects: Children; Delinquents and Correction; Health; 
Public Agencies and Institutions; The Family; Industrial and 
Economical Problems and The Local Community. 

More than 4,000 delegates from all sections of the United 
States and also Canada were in attendance upon the Pitts- 
burg Conference. The getting together with all these repre-

sentatives of the various private and public agencies to 
discuss social problems is a source of much inspiration and 
help in ministering to the needs of our fellow beings who 
cannot solve their own problems. 

The social problems of the war constituted the subject of 
what was probably the most significant series of discussions. 
Other topics to which much attention was given were: 
Mothers' Pensions; Social Insurance; Public Health; Com- 
munity Problems and Prison Work, 

The Massachusetts State Conference was held in New 
Bedford, October 24th to 26th, 1917, at which this depart- 
ment was represented by two of its clerks. 

A conference of representative men from leading com- 
munities of the countay was called by United States Food 
Administrator Herbert C. Hoover, which took place in 
Chicago, October 7, 1917, for the purpose of considering 
garbage utilization with a view to arriving at the most satis- 
factory and economical solution of this much agitated prob- 
lem in order to benefit the food conservation of our nation. 

As Worcester is one of the few cities which has been suc- 
cessfully converting its garbage into pork and the main 
purpose of the meeting being to consider to what extent 
feeding of garbage to hogs could be made practical for cities 
now wasting the garbage, it was especially desirable that 
Worcester be represented, and the Overseers of the Poor 
therefore delegated Overseer Charles S. Holden and Super- 
intendent of Home Farm Thomas Home to attend the 
deliberations. 

Superintendent Home having had much experience in the 
line of garbage disposal was called upon to give an account 
of the Worcester system of handling this matter. The con- 
ference was very favorably impressed by the report given 
relative to the methods used in Worcester, and it was agreed 
upon that the plan of feeding garbage to hogs was the one 
which should be in vogue in all communities in order to 
conserve the food supply, besides considerably reducing the 
expense of garbage disposal. 

The United States Food Commission consequently urges 
every town and city of from 10,000 to 200,000 population to 
adopt the Worcester method of garbage disposal — namely, 
that of feeding to swine. 

Chapter 188, Acts op 1916 

Under this act the Overseers of the Poor are authorized to 
grant temporary licenses to organizations to sell certain 
articles such as flags, badges, medals, buttons, etc., for charit- 
able purposes. The board has issued six such licenses this year.

Mothers' Aid 

The number of women being aided under Chapter 763, 
Acts of 1913, the so-called "Mothers' Aid Law," has been 
less during 1917 than the year 1916 although the amount of 
aid given has been slightly greater, which was made neces- 
sai^ because of the increased living expenditures. 

On November 30, 1917, 130 women were receiving 
Mothers' Aid as against 136 on the same date the year 
previous. The amount of money spent in providing for 
these families was $39,756.85 as against $37,581.53 the 
preceding year. The cash amounts have ranged from $2.00 
to $12.00 per week, the average weekly allowance being 
$5.95 on November 30, 1917, as against $5.34 a year ago. 
In addition to cash we have in many cases given coal and in 
some cases clothing during the winter months. 

The Mothers' Aid cases continue to receive close atten- 
tion and careful treatment at the hands of our visitor who 
devotes a great deal of time and study to this work. On the 
whole there appears to be a spirit of co-operation between the 
visitor and the mothers receiving this relief. The manner in 
which the Mothers' Aid work is being carried on in Worces- 
ter is favorably commented upon by the supervising oflBcials 
of the State Board of Charity and the most harmonious rela- 
tions exist between this department and the office of the 
State Board. 

The following table shows the comparative number of 
cases aided and the amounts given during the years since the 
Mothers' Aid Act became operative.

HOME FARM 

The whole program carried out at the farm is being 
extended from year to year and this past year has been 
one of very greatly increased activities. 

In order to meet the shortage in food stuffs and following 
the advice heralded from Washington, steps were taken 
to increase the yield of vegetables. In the month of March 
the board voted to lease for one year the so-called Roberts 
Farm, a property contiguous to Home Farm, comprising 
220 acres, and this increased the acreage to 596 acres; 
making it the largest acreage of any town or city alms- 
house property in the state. One hundred and twenty-five 
acres were tilled and grass was grown on 150 acres. 

As will be observed by the list of products raised, success 
attended the cultivation of the crops. 

Extra help had to be employed in growing the additional 
products of the soil and among this additional help was a 
group of boy scouts who assisted commendably in caring 
for the gardens. 

A very important and useful piece of machinery pur- 
chased during the year was a tractor which cost $3,822.00. 
Other equipment, as will be seen by the list of improvements 
given, was also bought. 

The chief products of the farm were pork, eggs, poultry, 
milk, potatoes, cabbage, hay, corn, celery, mangels and 
squash. The potatoes amounted to 2,250 bushels. 

The superintendent was authorized to purchase addi- 
tional cows in order to supply the City Hospital and Bel- 
mont Hospital with whatever milk was needed by these 
institutions, which amounts to 510 quarts for City Hospital 
and 170 quarts for Belmont Hospital daily, and this is 
being carried out. Forty-four cows were purchased, bring- 
ing the number of cattle on the farm up to 94 head. 

The construction of a new modem dairy barn is con- 
templated in the near future so as to afford better housing 
facilities for the cattle as well as to expedite the handling 
of the milk industry. In the meantime the undertaking is 
being run in a clean and sanitary manner with the cows 
housed in several places. We are using modern equipment, 
such as a clariner, pasteurizer, separator and milking 
machine. 

The poultry industry continues to thrive under scientific 
management and the usage of up-to-date methods in 
conducting it. A substantial revenue is realized from this 
venture which reduces the net expense of the almshouse 
materially. The poultry, numbering about 4,900, are

housed in three large modern houses 60 x 60 feet and 16 
brooder houses. Each large house is capable of accommo- 
dating 1,200 Leghorns or 1,000 Rhode Island Reds. The 
several hospitals are supplied with fresh poultry and eggs 
daily. About $16,000 is invested in this enterprise. 

The number of inmates on November 30, 1917, was 149 
and the average number at the end of each month was 158, 
which is less than for some years past. 

Without danger of contradiction we dare state that the 
Worcester Home Farm, as it stands to-day, is on a par with 
any similar institution throughout the United States.

HOUSE OFFAL DEPARTMENT 

The service of this department has been largely ex- 
tended during the past year because territory coverediby 
many private collectors has been taken over by the de- 
partment with the idea in mind of eventually eliminating 
all private collections. Although the area gone over is 
much greater, the added expense incurred is only slight, due 
to the increased sales of pork made possible by larger 
quantities of garbage being collected and fed to the swine. 
Twenty double horse teams are in service daily, making two 
collections a week in each section of the city. The garbage 
collected amounts to about twenty-five tons daily. 

The net expense of this department has been $38,632.04 
or about $1 per family, which is admittedly a very nominal 
cost in taking care of house offal. 

A serious fire which occurred September 23, 1917, re- 
sulted in the destruction of one large piggery building 
valued at $5650, and the burning to death of 436 pigs 
valued at $4350, entailing a total loss of $10,000 of which 
$6,114.36 was covered by insurance.

As will be noted under the heading of conferences, the 
Worcester method of garbage disposal meets the approval 
of the National Food Commission and therefore the Over- 
seers of the Poor are encouraged to continue along the pres- 
ent lines of handling this matter and endeavors will be 
made by the Superintendent and Board to further improve 
the system.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SEALER OF 
WEIGHTS AND MEASURES 



To His Honor the Mayor and the Honordble City Council: — 

Gentlemen: In compliance with the requirements of the 
City Charter to submit to you annually a report of the 
Weights and Measures Department, I respectfully submit 
the report for the fiscal year ending November 30, 1917, the 
third annual report of the department under my direction. 

"Do your bit" has not been lost sight of in this depart- 
ment. Food conservation and protection activities, brought 
to the front by reason of the war, have given this department 
opportunity to do its bit- We have been called on by the State 
Department of Weights and Measures to make special 
investigations, to secure official information relating to 
staple necessities of life for use by the Federal and State 
Food Conservation Commissioners. We have been called 
on since our last report to assist the State Department in 
special investigations outside of Worcester as well as in the 
city. 

Realizing that the scope of usefulness of the department is 
ever widening, and desiring to serve the public in every way 
possible, we have made special effort to render services to 
the manufacturing and mercantile establishments of the city. 

Our actual service and expert advice as to the advisability 
of installing efficiency-producing devices in the form of up- 
to-date weighing and measuring apparatus have, we know, 
been appreciated. 

This department is in fact, as well as in theory, a protec- 
tive department. 

By reason of our activities, frequent visits to and inspec- 
tions in the stores and markets, the insistence that full 
weight and measure be given, our insistence on the abolition 
of certain "customs of trade," and impartial prosecution of 
wilful and persistent violators of the laws framed to insure 
a "fair deal," we have given to every citizen a service that 
has in no small way helped to keep the high cost of necessi- 
ties from being unwarrantedly increased by short weight or 
measure. 

This is the kind of service the department is created and 
maintained to give and we are proud of the record of work 
performed.

350 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. [4 

The merchants of the city, wholesalers and retailers, as 
well as the purchasing public, now appreciate the fact that 
this is a protective, not a persecuting department. 

Honest merchants appreciate the work the department is 
doing, and dishonest merchants realize that the activities 
of the department force mean their apprehension and punish- 
ment. 

When appeal to reason fails to insure honest treatment to 
the purchasing public, this department has not failed to call 
violators before the court and that it may be appreciated 
that no petty cases are brought to court, we call attention to 
the record of thirteen cases brought to court, and in every 
case a conviction was secured. 

EflSciency is measured by results produced. In this con- 
nection I respectfully call your attention to the detail 
schedule of work performed included in this report. 

The revenue derived from sealing and adjusting in no 
sense can be used as a measure of the department's efficiency. 
Should the effort annually made and supported by some 

f)owerful interests result in legislation that will abolish the 
ee system, the cost of maintaining the department entirely 
from the tax levy would be warranted because of the protec- 
tion afforded to both seller and purchaser. 

We have continued our campaign of education during the 
year with gratifying results. Most householders now think 
of their purchases of commodities in pounds and ounces. 
There has been a notable increase in the use of scales in the 
homes, to check up purchases. 

Another result that we aimed for has come, co-operation 
between the housekeepers and this department. We now 
receive confidential reports which often, on investigation, 
lead to the correction of careless methods and unintentional 
short-weighting.

REPOET OP THE SUPERINTENDENT OP 
PUBLIC BUILDINGS, 1917 



Office of the Inspection and Construction of 
Buildings Department 

Worcester, Mass., December 29, 1917. 
To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester: — 

Gentlemen: As required by Chapter 3 of the Revised 
Ordinances of 1909 the annual report of the Superintendent 
of Public Buildings is hereby respectfully submitted: 

I do not feel that this report should be begun without first 
taking advantage of the opportunity it affords to express my 
appreciation of the valued encouragement and assistance I 
and all members of the department have received from your- 
selves as well as from His Honor the Mayor. My gratitude 
is likewise abundantly due my associates in the department 
itself, who have all worked diligently and faithfully in the 
city's interest and with great loyalty to their chief. 

To the representatives of the public press I also extend 
my hearty thanks for the uniform courtesy and fair con- 
sideration they have shown us throughout the year. 

As in previous years I would first report on the conditions 
of the various buildings in charge of this department, be- 
ginning with the 

City Hall 

which with few exceptions is in very good condition and is 
very well maintained from a janitorial point of view. During 
the year the room formerly occupied for meetings of the 
School Committee, it having been re-designated, was divided 
and equipped to accommodate the Clerk of Committees' 
Department and for meetings of the various joint standing 
committees of the City Council. 

In similar manner room 7A, formerly a portion of the suite 
occupied by the Health Department, has been equipped and 
devoted to the uses of the Registrar of Labor. 

In compliance with the long standing demands of the 
State Commissioner of Public Records, a fireproof vault has 
been constructed at one end of the rooms occupied by the 
Buildings Department and the mail chute has been put in a 
condition satisfactory to the Federal authorities.

Temporary repairs have been effected in an effort to at 
least make safe for the time being the driveway at the rear 
of the building. 

I<\irther needed repairs and improvements I would recom- 
mend for your consideration as follows: 

Retinting and repainting the interior plastered surfaces. 

Acoustical correction in the chambers occupied by the 
Common Council and Board of Aldermen. 

Construction of a fireproof vault for the records of the 
Registrars of Voters. 

A new and larger vault for electrical transformers. 

An air- washing system for use in connection with the heat- 
ing and ventilating apparatus. 

Re-paving of the mall at the rear of the building. 

SCHOOLHOUSES 

The public schoolhouses, while generally in a very credit- 
able state of repair, in some individual instances need exten- 
sive rejuvenation and improvements. The most notable 
improvements effected during the past year, though not 
necessarily given in the order bf their importance, are as 
follows; 

Installing electric lighting systems in the Elizabeth Street, 
Thomas Street, Oxford Street, Chandler Street, Salem Street, 
Adams Square and the old portion of the North High School. 

New slate blackboards in three class rooms at Adams 
Square schoolhouse, six class rooms at Grafton Street school- 
house No. 1, one class room at Lamartine Street schoolhouse 
No. 1, eight class rooms at Ledge Street building No. 1, seven 
rooms at Oxford Street, four rooms at Salem Street and four 
at the North High School. 

New sanitary plumbing and ventilation in the Oxford 
Street and Ward Street schoolhouses. 

A source of considerable disappointment was our financial 
inability to do any very extensive painting or tinting at these 
buildings as has been our usual custom during the summer 
vacation period. It is to be hoped that sufficient funds will 
be available next summer to undertake a large amount of 

Eainting so necessary for the proper preservation of the 
uildings both within and without. 

Instances where needed improvements or repairs are 
particularly desired are as follows: 

New sanitary plumbing at Webster Square, Abbott Street, 
Salem Street, Millbury Street and Sycamore Street school- 
houses, and in the Quinsigamond building No. 2, also in the 
girls' basement of Quinsigamond schoolhouse No. 1.

New heating and ventilating system in the Classical High 
School, Ward Street, Lamartine Street schoolhouse No. 1, 
Sycamore Street, Downing Street and North Pond school- 
houses. 

A fireproof partition in each story between the old and new 
portions of the High School of Commerce. 

An electric motor to take the place of the high pressure 
boiler and engine at the Belmont Street and Ash Street 
buildings, also at the Classical High School and in the old 
portion of the North High School. 

Electric lighting and fire alarm signal systems in all of the 
schoolhouses not already so equipped. 

Inter-communicating telephone and electric lighting 
system at the Classical High School. 

Much needed painter's work, especially on the exterior, 
for the adequate preservation of many of the buildings. 

Workshop and Storehouse 

With the exception of much needed repainting on the 
exterior this building is in very fair condition. For its own 
safety and that of its contents, I would again recommend 
that an automatic sprinkler system be installed. 

The foregoing recommendation is well worthy of your 
consideration, but especially would I recommend that the 
storage facilities be increased by the construction of an addi- 
tion to this building. 

Central District Court Building 

As you know this building is at present occupied for the 
purposes of the Central District Court and by the First 
Ihrecinct and Headquarters of the Police Department. Ow- 
ing to the fact that the new Police Headquarters building 
will soon be occupied for these purposes it has been deemed 
inexpedient to keep this building in any more than passable 
repair. Were it not for the reinforcing effect of the new 
buildings against the north wall, it is doubtful if the occu- 

{lancy of the older structure could have been continued, 
t is gradually but surely growing weaker and more unsafe 
as time goes on and as soon as vacated should be condemned 
and razed to the ground. 

Police Stations 

The new Police Headquarters and Central District Court 
building, together with the new garage and boiler house, 
have progressed without interruption if not very rapidly

during the past year, and should be ready for occupancy this 
spring. The workmanship demonstrated and materials used 
in the construction of these buildings are of a high character 
and very creditable to the contractors responsible therefor. 
The other buildings occupied by the Police Department, 
consisting of second, third and fourth precincts, are well 
cared for by those in charge. Those owned by the city are in 
fairly good condition. At the Lamartine Street station, 
because of the isolated location of its cell room, the present 
heating apparatus is hardly adequate, in consequence of 
which a larger boiler should be installed. The little building 
occupied as a sub-station on Lake Avenue is in good condi- 
tion with the exception df the exterior which should be re- 
painted. 

Fire Stations 

The buildings occupied by the Fire Department are gen- 
erally in good condition, though most if not all of them are in 
need of painting on the exterior and considerable retinting 
and painting within. 

The most needed improvements are shower baths in all 
buildings not already so equipped, new plumbing and electric 
lighting system at the John Street Engine House, a new pair 
of doors at the entrance to the Union Square Engine House, 
and a new electric lighting system at the Department Head- 
quarters building. 

Health Department Buildings 

These buildings consisting of the Belmont Hospital group, 
the men's and women's bathhouses and the Albany Street 
Incinerator, are, with the exception of the latter structure, 
in very fair condition. All of them with the possible excep- 
tion of the brick buildings at the Belmont Hospital are in 
need of exterior painting. Steps should be taken as early as 
possible in the coming year to reinforce the foundations of the 
Incinerator building. This need you may recall I have al- 
ready referred to in other reports. It should not be further 
neglected. 

Water Department Buildings 

The buildings occupied by this department are, as has 
always been their condition since I have been familiar with 
them, in an excellent state of repair.

Sewer Departbient 

The buildings occupied by this department are of a con- 
siderable number, varied occupancy, and distributed at 
considerable distances from one another. They are all, how* 
ever, in very good condition, especially those of masonry 
construction. In some instances the wooden frame buildings 
occupied by the Sewer Department are not quite up to stand- 
ard in the matter of repair though they need but little atten- 
tion to put them into good condition. Money could be spent 
to better advantage, however, in replacing some of them at 
least, notably the Sewer Department Workshop on East 
Worcester Street, with newer structures of masonry designed 
for the purpose, that would be better adapted to the uses of 
the department. This, you may remember, I have recom- 
mended on former occasions. 

Rifle Range 

The buildings and property at the Rifle Range, situated 
in the town of Shrewsbury, are on the whole in good condi- 
tion. It is a source of great regret, however, that appropria- 
tions have not been made nor orders passed for the construc- 
tion of a bam and stable building on this property. Such 
conveniences are an absolute necessity for the caretaker in 
charge of the range in the proper discharge of the duties 
required of him and as a necessary encouragement to any 
man and his family to live the isolated life this position neces- 
sitates. The present encumbent of this position is a man of 
exceptional ability, particularly well adapted to the work, 
whose industry and zeal in the dispatch of his duties should 
seriously commend his needs for your very earliest and inost 
favorable consideration. I feel that I cannot speak too 
strongly in urging the need of a barn and stable building at 
the range. Plans and specifications have already been pre- 
pared for such a structure and submitted for your considera- 
tion. If the plans of the proposed structure are of such a 
nature that it would seem inexpedient to carry them out, 
may I request your orders for even a more modest building. 

City Scales 

These items of property are maintained in as good condi- 
tion as might be expected considering their exposed unpro- 
tected locations. It is utterly impossible to keep them in 
perfect working condition at all times especially during the 
colder periods of the winter months. With one exception 
thev are all located in the traveled way of the public streets 
and subject to greater stresses than those for which they were

originally intended by the constant passing over them of the 
heavier vehicles and large motor trucks characteristic of 
present day traffic. All of the scales so situated should be 
replaced by scales of larger capacity and heavier construc- 
tion and if possible so located as to be housed or protected 
from the elements.

ings is set forth or indicated by the word "Good," "Fair/*

The word "good," as set forth above, in describing a building's condition* 
does not nece^arily mean perfect; it is intended to convey to the mind a 
general idea of its state of repair. In several instances the building as a unit 
may be in excellent condition, though in many ways obsolete. Some parts of 
the equipment, such as heating apparatus, ventilating apparatus or plumbing, 
may be m need of renewal, revision or repairs and in many instances repainting 
is needed.

Inspection Service 

Those of this department who devote practically their 
entire time to this division of our work have rendered most 
efficient service and with praiseworthy industry. The new 
building ordinances have added to the amount of work done 
under this service by necessitating the inspection of all 
piping installed for the conveyance of gas for illumination 
and fuel purposes as well as the testing of these pipes and the 
inspection of gas fixtures and gas appliances. To adequately 
cope with the requirements of this extra inspection work it 
will be necessary in the coming year to increase the force by 
at least two additional inspectors, their entire time to be 
devoted to this latter branch of the inspection service. 

In accordance with requirements of state law the various 
hotels and lodging houses were inspected during the month of 
May by the assistant superintendent of public buildings and 
their conditions relative to safety in case of fire duly reported 
to the chief of the Massachusetts District Police. The assist- 
ant superintendent together with three assistant building 
inspectors have during the course of the year made 8,946 
inspections at the various buildings in course of construction, 
alteration or material repair. Quite a few violations of the 
city ordinances have been observed by the inspectors and 
with only four exceptions necessary corrections have been 
made without resorting to processes of law. We are en- 
couraged to believe that the four exceptions referred to will 
be remedied in the very near future in the same amiable 
manner. 

In the matter of the elevator inspection service I would 
report the number of elevators in active service in the city 
at this date is 926, not including 41 in private dwellings. 
There are 38 in addition to these which are not in active 
service, making a total number of 1,005 serviceable equip- 
ments of this kind in the city. Of the active machines not 
including those in private dwellings, 193 are passenger 
elevators and 733 used for freight purposes. 2,283 inspections 
have been made during the past year as set forth in the 
following table:

With the earnest wish that the recommendations given 
in this report will be carefully considered, and wherever 
possible, favorably acted upon; that the various tabulations 
of the properties in our charge, the expenditures made there- 
on both in the matter of repairs, improvements and new 
work, will clearly indicate the manner in which the funds 
with which we have been entrusted, have been expended, I 
am

REPORT OP THE WATER COMMISSIONER 



To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester: — 

Gentlemen: In accordance with Section 10, Chapter 41 
of the City Ordinances, the report of the Water Commis- 
sioner for the year ending November 30, 1917, is respectfully 
submitted. 

Supply 

The storage reservoirs were completely filled in the spring 
of 1917 and on December 1, 1917, contained these quantities 
of water in millions of gallons.

LOW SERVICE

Total .1,225 

In this report of last year it was recommended that the 
Wachusett pumping plant should not be discontinued until 
Pine Hill Reservoir had been completed and filled, but the 
Metropolitan Water Board has insisted that the pumping 
plant be taken down at as early a date as practicable. At a 
conference held in the office of His Honor the Mayor at 
which were present Mayor Holmes, the writer and repre- 
sentatives of the Metropolitan Water Board, it was stated 
that the board insisted on the removal of the plant notwith- 
standing the expressed desires of the Mayor and Water Com- 
missioner to retain it for emergency use. 

The representatives of the city of Worcester were unable 
to secure permission to maintain the plant, so His Honor the 
Mayor directed the Water Commissioner to remove it. 

This has not been done as yet because of the difficulty of 
finding men to do the work.

Water Supply for Areas Higher Than the Reservoirs 

An appropriation of fifty thousand dollars was made in 

1916 for the purpose of beginning the construction of a 

f)uniping plant, pipe line and reservoir to be located on How- 
and Hill in Tatnuck. 

Beyond purchasing a part of the pipe necessary for the 
line, nothing has been done. 

It was virtually impossible to find the necessary labor to 
do this work and the price of necessary materials was so 
inflated by the war that the work would probably have cost 
from two to three times the original amount estimated. 

Equipment 

There has been no work in Worcester for the Austin 
Trenching Machine so it has been rented to the Water De- 
partment of New London and Hartford, Conn. 

There has been received in rental of this machine approxi- 
mately $4,000. 

The trenching machine and back filler are now carefully 
housed and stored in the yard of the Hartford Water Depart- 
ment with every prospect that they will be largely used in 
that city in 1918. 

Automobiles and Horse-drawn Apparatus 

There are now twelve cars in use by this department, nine 
of which are used for trucking ranging in size from a light 
Ford truck to the big Pope Hartford with a capacity of five 
tons. 

These trucks are constantly in use except when there are 
heavy snows, and are subjected to very severe usage. 

Some of them have been in use for five years, and are very 
close to the time when they cannot be economically run. 

There should be at least two replacements in 1918 and 
one truck of one-ton capacity should be added to the outfit. 

A very valuable addition to the equipment was made in 

1917 by the purchase of a Selden two-ton chassis on which 
was constructed a special body designed and built by the 
men in the department. 

The car is used for emergency purposes and is equipped 
with necessary tools for handling broken water mains, 
hydrants, etc., and carries a card index system giving the 
location of all gate valves and hydrants. It is ready for 
service at all hours of the day or night to protect the city 
from trouble to the water system. Fortunately calls for its 
use for that piirpose have been infrequent except in cases

5] WATER COMMISSIONER. 407 

where hydrants have been broken by drivers of automobiles 
or horses. 

The lines of water pipes laid in the last ten years or 
more have given practically no trouble and should not for a 
long time as they were laid with the best materials and work- 
manship. 

The department is now entirely motorized with the excep- 
tion of two horse-drawn wagons which are used for small 
jobs with short hauls. 

Forestry 

It has been the practice for several years to plant young 
trees on the water sheds with a view of securing a return in 
value of the lumber. 

Many acres of Worcester water sheds have been so treated, 
there are hundreds of thousands of young pines growing 
which will be very valuable in later years. 

A nursery for pines has been established at Kendall Reser- 
voir so they can be raised from the seed and transplanted at 
the age of three or four years. 

In some foreign countries an annual revenue of about 
twelve dollars per acre is realized from the lumber raised in 
its forests. 

There is no reason why Worcester with its large water shed 
areas should not have some great forests which will yield a 
good revenue and still be kept covered by younger trees 
coming along. 

A large start in this direction has already been made and it 
only remains to future generations to carry on a work which 
will result in furnishing the citizens of Worcester with magni- 
ficent forests which can be used for recreation and for busi- 
ness purposes. 

War Gardens 

Owing to the scarcity and high prices of vegetables it was 
thought advisable to plant some of the unused lands at 
Kendall Reservoir, not with the idea of making money but 
to help in a general way to relieve the shortage of food. 

About fifteen acres were planted with potatoes, squash, 
cabbages, beets, etc., jrielding a crop which was marketed 
largely among the employees of the department. A sufficient 
revenue was derived to pay the entire cost of the farming 
and of the implements which were purchased for that work. 

Pipe Lines 

. Experience furnishes a warning that the present high serv- 
ice pipe system is again becoming overtaxed.

408 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. [6 

The great manufacturing section east of Main Street is 
supplied by a sixteen-inch high service pipe running from 
Webster Square, through Cambridge Street over Providence 
Street and Eastern Avenue to Belmont Hill. 

Fortunately much of this territory has a low service sup- 
ply, upon which the draft is largely placed, but the high 
service line is totally inadequate to take care of demands 
which may be made on it. 

It is particularly urged that a thirty-inch high service line 
be laid in Cambridge Street from Webster Square to South- 
bridge Street, as the first means toward furnishing proper 
fire protection for that section and to materially strengthen 
the entire high service system east of Main Street. 

The plan of paving Summer Street with granite blocks is 
being discussed and if positive action is taken towards that 
end, the present eight-inch pipe line in that street from 
Thomas Street north should be relaid with a twenty-four- 
inch line. 

There are nearly twenty miles of old one-inch pipe and 
fifty-one miles of two-inch pipe lines in use in the suburban 
portions of the city. 

It was the part of good judgment to lay these at the time, 
but in many cases they have been heavily built around and 
overtaxed. These pipe lines furnish no fire protection what- 
ever, and should be replaced by main pipes as rapidly as 
possible. 

It is recommended that the plans for 1918 include suflS- 
cient appropriations to cover some of this work of replace- 
ment in the most necessary places. 



Pine Hill Reservoir 

Work on this reservoir is progressing very slowly due to 
the shortage of labor. 

The writer urges that all reasonable efforts be used to 
complete this work as soon as possible. In this connection 
an examination of the increasing draft, and population 
figures, shows the need of quickly developing storage on this 
new supply. 

If storage is not shortly developed on this system, there is 
more than a possibility of a shortage of supply. At the 
present moment, a winter drought followed by a dry spring 
in 1918 would reduce the stored water to a point where it 
would not be certain that water could be sufiiciently supplied 
for the summer months.

Water Committee 

The Water Committee of 1917 took a great interest in the 
activities of the department and gave freely of their time to 
assist and co-operate in its management. 

The writer personally acknowledges with thanks the 
assistance and comtesy shown him on all occasions by the 
members of the committee.

Revenue 

The increase in revenue for 1917 over 1916 is $46,524.64, 
the second largest in the history of the department. 

It would be unwise to figure on a like increase of the 1918 
revenue because many of our young men are going to the 
war, many families are liable to consolidate their homes and 
the business outlook, while good at present, is in such an 
abnormal condition as to be uncertain. 

Final disposition of the parks' and playgrounds' water 
bills was made by the City Council on recommendation of 
the Water and Finance Committees that: 

Ordered: That the Water Registrar under the direction 
of the Mayor be, and he is hereby authorized to abate, in 
the total sum of $17,739.12 accrued bills for metered water 
furnished the Park Commissioners, Public Playgrounds and 
the Parks and Recreation Commission for use in the public 
parks and playgrounds of the city; said amount to include 
unpaid bills rendered the Parks Commission for metered 
water used in the years 1915 and 1916 and charged for 
water furnished the Park Commissioners, Public Play- 
grounds and Parks and Recreation Commission in 1917. 

The reduction of water rates made in 1909 has been 
severely felt in the activities of this department. While all 
bills have been paid and balances carried over, there are 
many improvements which have been held back for lack of 
funds. 

Records show that the writer vigorously opposed the 
reduction at the time and developments have shown that 
the rates should not have been reduced. It is to be hoped 
that necessity will not demand an increase in the water rates 
though such a contingency may arise. 

Depreciation Fund 

There are no funds appropriated to take care of the de- 
preciation of the water department plant which is surely 
going on. 

It is considered sound practice in water works management 
to create a depreciation fund to cover the costs of necessary 
replacements, rather than to go along just making both ends 
meet and eventually facing a period when a big load of 
expense must be met in a limited period, rather than distrib- 
uted over a period of years, as would be done by a deprecia- 
tion account. 

It is therefore recommended that in making appropriations 
for 1918, that a sum of not less than $25,000.00 be transferred

to an account known as Water Department Depreciation 
Account. 

Instead of reducing water rates, which have not been high, 
all resources should be used to put the department on a sound 
physical and financial basis. 

Very respectfully, 

GEO. W. BATCHELDER, 
Water Registrar.

EEPOET OF CITY ENGHNEEB 



To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester. 

Gentlemen: As required by ordinance, a report relative 
to the reservoir work of the city for the fiscal year ending 
November 30, 1917, is herewith respectfully submitted. 

Continued work upon the Pine Hill reservoir dam through- 
out the season has carried the work into the hill on the 
northerly side of the location as far as it was possible until 
the structure was raised sufficiently high to care for the main 
stream of water by other means than through the artificial 
channel heretofore in use. One section of the dam between 
two expansion joints was raised only to the ground level, 
while the adjoining sections have been carried to greater 
height, and with dykes to lead the water to and from this 
low section the dewatering of the remaining excavations 
has been accomplished. The lower portion of the gate well 
has been built, and two sluice gates put in place together 
with the main draft pipe through the dam. These are 
sufficient in size to care for the ordinary flow of the stream, 
so that the low section in the dam can be raised without 
interference when the time arrives to do so. 

It is now purposed to continue work in the northerly 
hill, and to employ the steam shovel to as low a level as it 
can conveniently be used. Railroad tracks, the necessary 
derricks and other apparatus have been arranged, and the 
winter months will be largely devoted to this work and the 
operations at the quarry. Due to our inability to procure 
the desired number of laborers to conduct all features of the 
work at the same time, it is necessary to prepare in advance 
considerable quantities of crushed stone and sand for the 
summer's use, and a number of the men will be employed 
for this purpose during the winter. 

At times the amount of sand produced by the original 
plant was not sufficient to meet the demands of the concrete 
mixers, and to the sand plant was added a Telsmith Inter- 
cone Mill, which practically doubled the quantity of sand 
previously made. The lack of labor has reduced the amount 
of work hoped for at the beginning of the season, but the 
high quality of the work has been maintained. 

Wood cut within the basin has been used for making 
steam whenever possible, but with the style of locomotives

in use and for certain other boilers it has been necessary to 
use coal, which we have so far been fortunate enough to 
procure. We were also favored in obtaining sufficient 
cement to complete the concrete work for this year. These 
materials are forwarded to the nearest railroad siding in the 
town of Holden, and then transported by truck or motor 
to the railway line connected with the work. The far 
removal of the site of operations from the usual means of 
transportation adds materially to the task of conducting a 
work of this nature. 

Repairs to the spillway at the Tatnuck Brook reservoir 
dam No. 2, made necessary by the action of ice and frost, 
were completed late in the season. 

The remaining dams and reservoirs are apparently in 
good condition, lacking a few minor repairs to be made when 
opportunity offers. 

A schedule of the property, stock and machinery in use 
on the work can be seen at the office of the Water Com- 
missioner. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRED'K A. McCLURE, 

City Engineer.

3] CITY ENGINEER. 461 

On December 31, 1917, the following order, introduced 
by Councilman A. H. Moss, was passed by the City Council: 

"City of Worcester 

In City Council, Dec. 31, 1917. 
Ordered: That the City Engineer or other city officials who have in charge the 
construction of the Pine Hill water system embody in their annual report a 
comprehensive financial statement of the same, giving the original detailed 
estimate of amounts and costs, both of land and unit quantities, together with 
progress report as to amounts of unit quantities completed, such as excava- 
tion, earth excavation, stripping of basin, construction of R. R., cu. yds. of con* 
Crete or other masonry, etc. (or however said estimates may have been deter- 
mined); totalling up same to show total amounts expended, balance still on 
hand, whether actual cost runs under or over estimated costs, and an estimate 
both as to cost and quantities for the completion of the work and probable 
time of same — in other words, a detailed engineer progress report. 

Approved, Jan. 4, 1918. Pehr G. Holbies, Mayor, 

W. Henry Townb, City Clerk." 

The first order of the City Council appropriating money 
for the further development of the Asneoumskit water 
supply preliminary to the construction of the Pine Hill dam 
and reservoir was passed by the City Council on December 
29, 1913, appropriating the sum of $50,000.00, with which 
operations were commenced for the carrying out of the 
order, by building a railway to the site of the work for the 
transportation of the machinery, materials, and all supplies 
and labor necessary to its building, and for the seizure of 
land bordering the main stream and the southerly portion 
of the land upon which the dam was to be erected. 

From the beginning thus made appropriations for the 
work have been provided by the City Council, and additional 
lands seized and purchased as became necessary, or was 
deemed advisable for the proper maintenance and guarding 
of the completed work, together with additional machinery, 
tools, buildings and, appliances for the work. 

All expenditures of whatever nature have been published 
annually, but are herewith classified in units to the end of 
the fiscal year just closed, as follows:

Total $411,827.49 

Unexpended balance $201,123 .14 

The unit costs of rock and earth excavations exceeded the 
original estimates. 

In the above list of expenditures the cost of labor, which 
has been distributed in the items stated, amounted to 
$253,510.30. 

The above statement shows the expenditures which have 
been applied to the work so far accomplished, including a 
considerable part of the difficult foundation, and much 
other preliminary work before any of the actual building 
of the dam could proceed. It was not until the month of 
August, 1916, that any masonry of the dam was put in place 
because of the difficult foundation work, which in places 
exceeded forty feet in depth. With the foundation secured 
the work becomes simpler and less expensive as the height 
increases. 

Other work of importance was the opening of the quarry, 
entailing the removal of large quantities of soft stone and 
sap unsuited for use before proper material was reached. 

Much other work necessary not only to what has been 
accomplished but to future operations has been done.

such as the extension of the raih-oad system to all parts of 
the work and into the basin above the dam. A portion of the 
tracks so built simplified the getting of wood that had 
been cut within the flowage lines to the main steam plants. 
This wood is now being used when coal is unobtainable. 

To date 170 acres have been cleared, mostly during the 
winter months when the temperature was too cold for 
building. Also the work of quarrying for production of 
the plums used in the main structure of the dam and the 
crushing of stone and making of sand for concrete uses, 
in order to supply the amount required during the building 
months. 

In the matter of labor it has been impossible to obtain a 
sufficient number of men to push the work to the point 
desired. At no time has it been possible to engage more 
than about one-fourth the number of men needed, so that 
the work must be confined to certain limits without the 
advantage of doing many features at the same time, or to 
keep in continuous production the work being performed, 
making it necessary to shift operations of construction to 
preparatory work and back again. The Italian labor for- 
merly employed has left us, the last few being lured to 
other employment by larger pay and less hours, so that the 
forces now engaged are to a large extent citizens, and this 
fact requires their transportation back and forth where 
formerly camps were used. These additional hours of 
transportation have proved a great handicap in procuring 
men in sufficient numbers. We have been favored, how- 
ever, by retaining many of our skilled foremen, engineers, 
carpenters, machine and men of like character who have 
been employed in the department for many years and with- 
out whom it would have oeen impossible to proceed. 

The final disposition of the main stream which has 
hitherto been a barrier to foundation work has been accom- 
plished and further excavations are now proceeding. There 
remains about 163 lineal feet of this deep work yet to be 
done, but as it advances into the northerly hill the under- 
lying stratum of mica schist appears to be more firm in its 
structure, and indicates less difficulty in preparation than 
similar material already passed through. From this point 
the excavations rapidly decrease both in depth and section. 
With the completion of the foundation the most difficult and 
expensive portion of the dam will be passed and the work 
will gain in evidence more rapidly. 

The original estimate, made on somewhat tentative 
plans, in the years 1905-1906, was as follows:

The original project was estimated at the time when the 
working day was of nine hours' dm*ation, the cost of labor 
about one-half the present cost, transportation in part only 
was necessary, before the days of vacations for every 

?ualified employee on the force, before the Workman's 
!ompensation Act was placed upon the statute books, and 
before the price of materials, such as cement, steel and 
lumber, which are used in large amounts, had advanced to 
such extreme prices. It should be realized that a matter of

twelve years' interval of time between the first conception of 
its plan and the final undertaking gives a vague idea of com- 
parative costs and proportions. It should also be remem- 
bered that the structure now building is very different in 
character and construction, and the capacity of the reser- 
voir will be 50 per cent, greater than that first contemplated. 
As to the quantities required for the completion of the 
work no estimate can be given before the completion of 
the foundation. The underlying ledge is at such depth that 
with the knowledge we now have of its character, it is im- 
possible to prophesy the amount necessary to remove, the 
extent of drilling for grouting the remaining ledge, the 
water carrying seams to be encountered and dealt with, the 
extent and amount of sheeting and bracing that may be re- 
quired, and other features that have to do with this most 
costly portion of the undertaking. These features vitally 
affect the probable time of completion and its costs, which 
together with the uncertainty of the labor problem make 
estimates of little value. Under the conditions now existing 
I can not place the element of time nearer than from three 
to five years, and a probable cost above the foundations of 
$900,000. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRED'K A. McCLURE, 
City Engineer.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OP 
THE CITY HOSPITAL 



To His Honor Pehr G. Holmes, Mayor, and the City Council 
of the City of Worcester: — 

The Trustees of the Worcester City Hospital hereby 
submit their annual report for the year ending November 
30, 1917. 

With crowded wards most of the time, steadily rising 
prices, a staff reduced because of response to the Nation's 
call for medical and nursing volunteers and a shortage of 
help, the work of City Hospital during the past year has 
been active in all departments. 

In spite of unavoidable increased expenses, it has been 
the purpose of the Trustees that the quality of the service 
should not be lowered. The per capita cost for all bed 
patients in the hospital has been $14.80, as against $12.21 
in 1916. The daily average number of patients has been 
312.69, as against 324.44 in 1916. The average increased 
cost of hospital necessities since 1915 has run parallel to the 
increased cost of like items of living for the average family. 
But the cost of gauze, absorbent cotton and some other hos- 
pital supplies has about doubled since 1915. Surgeons 
gauze which cost under two cents per yard in 1915 now costs 
four cents per yard. Absorbent cotton which cost 13 J^ 
cents a pound in 1915, now costs 28 cents per pound. Coal, 
which cost City Hospital $4.73 per ton in 1915 and $5.50 
per ton in 1916, has cost above $8.00 per ton for most of 
1917. Bandage cotton, which cost il4 cents per yard in 
1915 and 5% cents in 1916, has cost 11 cents or more per 
yard in 1917. Cut bandages, which cost 30 cents per pound 
in 1915 and 45 cents per pound in 1916, now cost 80 cents 
per pound. Beef which cost 12 H cents in 1915 and 13 cents 
in 1916 now costs 16 cents. Lamb which cost 16 cents in 
1915 and 20 cents in 1916 now costs 26 cents. Ham which 
cost 14 J^ cents in 1915 and 23 cents in 1916 now costs 
28 cents. Bacon has gone from 17 H cents in 1915 to 35 
cents in 1917. Eggs from 30 cents in 1915 to 48 cents in 
1917. Flour from $6.70 in 1915 to $13 in 1917. Sugar from 
$5.55 per hundred in 1915 to $9.25 in 1917. These compari- 
sons with the necessary increase in wages tell the financial

side of the story. All indications point to still larger ex 
penses for the current year. 

Land with wooden buildings at 12, 14, 16 and 18 Queen 
Street and 68 Jaques Avenue was purchased in the spring 
through means generously provided by the City Govern- 
ment. These buildings are not well suited for permanent 
homes for nurses and employees of City Hospital, but the 
sites are necessary for new fire-proof buildings and some of 
these old wooden buildings can be made more suitable, 
temporarily, for employees than the quarters previously 
occupied. 

A new flat work ironer has been installed in our laundry 
during the year; a new dormitory to provide accommoda- 
tions for six male nurses has been built over Ward D of 
the men's surgical pavilion; and a new 300-horse-power 
boiler has been installed during the fiscal year. We greatly 
need a drying tumbler which we failed to obtain last year 
for the laundry. This will cost about $1,800; and we also 
need for the laundry two steam pressers for shirts, nurses' 
waists and aprons which will cost about $180 each. These 

Eressers are labor saving devices that we cannot afford to 
e without. 

The Trustees found that the cost of a new baking oven 
had increased so rapidly since estimates were made, that 
the appropriation asked for to build a new oven and store 
room for supplies was not sufficient. It was decided to 
try to make repairs on the old oven and wait for a time in the 
hope that the cost of these additions would be more reason- 
able. 

The Trustees found that the provisional plans for an 
addition to the maternity pavilion for which an appropria- 
tion was granted last year, would not work out satisfactorily. 
It was thought not advisable to build until modified plans 
could be made to the satisfaction of the Trustees. 

The Trustees believe that the City Hospital should be 
provided and equipped to serve all classes of citizens of the 
City of Worcester. Those citizens who can pay should 
certainly pay cost or a little more than cost. The poor who 
cannot pay should, of course, be well cared for free, or for 
such part of the cost of their care as they may be able to 
pay. Those who urge that a municipal hospital should not 
provide for those who are able to pay for private hospital 
services may not fully appreciate the stimulating influence 
which comes to a hospital which not only cares for the poor 
but for the most critical class of citizens. In the opinion 
of the Trustees, City Hospital has greatly benefited by caring 
for hundreds of the most intelligent and critical citizens

of Worcester. Occasionally one amply able to pay for pri- 
vate service in the beginning of a serious illness has found 
his means exhausted before his need of hospital care has 
ended. The City of Worcester has had some financial 
losses from such cases. But the indirect benefits of the pub- 
lic may outweigh these losses many times. The Trustees 
believe that City Hospital turns out better graduate nurses 
and better graduate physicians because these nurses and 
physicians have at times successfully cared for a highly 
mtelligent and discriminating class of the citizens of Wor- 
cester. They believe it would be unwise and unfair to ask 
the visiting staff of physicians and surgeons to give of their 
services gratuitously to the poor people of Worcester and 
deny them suitable accommodations for their private 
patients who are willing to pay for private room service. 
At no time has the line been sharply drawn between "pri- 
vate" room and public ward patients. Eye cases, pneu- 
monia cases, erysipelas cases, and all patients suffering from 
diseases somewhat contagious, as well as delirious cases 
and patients who are dying need private rooms as dis- 
tinguished from the open wards. City Hospital has been 
greatly handicapped because of the limited number of these 
so-called "private" rooms. All the patients of a crowded 
ward are frequently disturbed throughout the night by the 
moans of a delirious or dying patient. Ward I has never 
had a suitable elevator. The sick patients who must be 
taken up and down stairs unless they are able to sit or 
stand must be carried up a winding stairway on a stretcher. 
If the patient is light and the robust men nurses are avail- 
able all goes fairly well, but if the patient is heavy the sit- 
uation becomes risky. 

The Trustees recommend that a building with single 
rooms to be used for any patient needing a single room, oe 
built north of the main corridor opposite Ward I, connected 
with Ward I and provided with a suitable elevator so that 
patients may be taken up and down stairs with safety and 
without discomfort. Such an addition would result in 
better balanced accommodations for all classes of patients. 
It would make the open ward service more comfortable 
and efficient by removing from the public wards delirious 
patients. 

City Hospital is limited for land on which to build. In the 
near future, comprehensive plans must be made for a 
general expansion to meet increasing demands on City 
Hospital. Another year has only emphasized the statement 
made in our last year's report. "We cannot enlarge one 
department without increasing all the forces that ad-

minister to that department"; and "we cannot crowd 
more beds for patients into wards already overcrowded." 
The Trustees feel, however, that it is better, if possible, 
not to attempt the large additions needed while the cost 
of construction is so much above normal, and they pledge 
themselves to make the most of the present equipment until 
the urgent demands of humanity at large have been met and 
the war needs satisfied for which provision must be abso- 
lutely made now. 

The Trustees respectfully submit a schedule of expenses 
of the past year and an estimate for the year 1918, realizing, 
indeed, that it is impossible to make a definite estimate as 
to what the demands for hospital service will be.

Bills Dub the Hospital 

For many years, bills for board and care which have 
proved not collectible during the year have been carried on 
the books and added each year to the sum of bad debts for 
many previous years. This evidence of an abiding faith and 
hope is in contrast to the method of many business cor- 
porations which transfer bad debts annually to the debit 
side of loss and gain account. The sum total of uncollected 
bills, many of which represent the bad debts of many pre- 
vious years, amounted on November 30, 1917, to $76,038.41. 

Per Capita Cost 

The average cost of caring for patients has been $14.80 
per week, as against $12.21 in 1916. 

Statistics 

There were admitted to the surgical wards, 2,407 patients, 
compared with 2,330 last year. The daily average cost of 
surgical patients was $2.14, compared with $1,821 last year. 

There were 1,817 patients admitted to the medical wards, 
compared with 1,901 in 1916. The daily average cost of 
medical patients was $1,929, compared with $1,553 in 1916. 

The number of children admitted was 685, compared 
with 755 in 1916. The daily average cost of the children 
was $2,334, as against $1,792 in 1916. 

There were 836 minor accidents treated at a total expense 
of $1,980.37, or $2,369 per treatment, compared with 
$1,914 last year. 

The number of patients admitted to the maternity service 
was 571, compared with 512 last year. There were 535 
births, as against 493 in 1916. The average daily cost of 
this department, including infants as patients, was $1,882, 
compared with $1,578. 

The average number of beds occupied during the year was 
312.69, while the average last year was 324.44. 

The average duration of residence in the hospital of free 
and paying patients was 16.75, compared with 17.24 last 
year. The number of days' treatment was 114,135 as 
against 118,421 the previous year. 

The largest number in the hospital in any one day was 
372, compared with 377 last year, and the smallest number 
was 272, compared with 261 in 1916. 

The total cost of subsistence supplies was $91,484.88, or 
$292.55 for each bed occupied, while last year the total was 
$77,343.92 and the cost per bed was $238.53. (The receipts

from the sale of grease, swill, etc., $653.86, was deducted 
from the cost of food.) 

Of the patients treated, 4,322 were classified as pay 
patients and paid their expenses all, or in part, as com- 
pared with 3,598 in 1916; 2,942 in 1915; 2,845 in 1914; 
2,885 in 1913. The remaining 2,489 were classified as free 
patients, but of this number 197 were town patients, and 
reimbursement to the extent of $12.00 per week was made 
to the city, while 484 were state patients and were charged 
to the Commonwealth at the rate of $7 per week. The num- 
ber of town patients in 1916 was 323 and the number of 
state patients was 551. 

The average amount charged paying patients was $13.63 
a week. The average amount charged in 1916 was $13.26. 

Rejections 

During the year 92 applicants were refused admission to 
the hospital, compared with 90 last year. Of this number 
8 were suffering from chronic, contagious and venereal 
diseases; 20 had no settlement in Worcester; 53 were refused 
for lack of beds; and 11 were referred to physicians outside. 

Out-Patient Department 

There were admitted to the Department 5,478 new 
patients compared with 6,074 in 1916. They were divided 
among the different clinics as follows: Medical, 984; surgi- 
cal, 1,930; eye, 630; ear, nose and throat, 774; dermatologi- 
cal, 304; gynecological, 163; neurological, 52; orthopedic, 
110; genito-urinary, 193; lung, 42; massage, 77; dental, 70; 
electro-therapeutic, 149. 

Last year there were 6,074 patients admitted to all clinics, 
or 596 more than this year. The total number of visits this 
year was 25,744, as compared with 25,725, an increase of 19. 

The visits among the different divisions were divided as 
follows: medical, 2,476; surgical, 12,057; eye, 1,903; ear, 
nose and throat, 2,120; dermatological, 693; g3mecological, 
815; neurological, 149; orthopedic, 509; genito-urinary, 
1,821; lung, 130; massage, 1,383; dental, 85; electro-thera- 
peutic, 1,423. 

The daily average treated was 84.68, as compared with 
84.35 in 1916. 

In admitting patients to this department, each applicant 
is questioned carefully as to his or her ability to pay. Only 
those are admitted who cannot afford to pay a physician 
for his services. In questioning applicants as to their 
ability and desire to pay for services, no fixed rules are 
followed, but the desire for independence and self-reliance is

stimulated so that many who come for free treatment volun- 
teer to go to physicians outside the hospital rather than 
accept charity. 

In cases of sudden sickness, or recent accident, relief is 
given immediately without preliminary investigation. The 
applicant is always given the benefit of any doubt. 

Persons Employed 

The average number of persons employed was 260.38 
as against 272.62 last year; the average number of persons 
boarded, other than patients, was 242.66, as against 253.18 
in 1916. The total number of days' board furnished patients 
and employees was 202,764, as against 210,835 last year. 
The daily cost of food was $0.45, compared with $0,366 
last year. 

Private Patient Service 

The number of patients occupying private rooms for the 
year was 545, compared with 598 last year. 

During the past year the average cost of caring for 
patients was $2,755 a day, compared with $2,385 in 1916. 
The average price charged for rooms was $21.17 exclusive 
of special nursing, compared with $20.08 in 1916. The 
total income derived from this source, including special 
nursing was $23,874.45. 

Patients Entitled to Free Treatment 

There has always been more or less misunderstanding as 
to the class of people which the City Hospital accepts as 
free patients. The admitting officers of the hospital are 
required to explain daily, several times over, just why 
applicants for free treatment are rejected. 

The only patients eligible for free treatment in this 
hospital according to the ruling of the Trustees, are those 
who have gained a legal settlement in the City of Worcester, 
and who require relief during temporary sickness. Patients, 
though legally settled in Worcester, are expected to pay when 
able to do so. 

Patients legally settled in other cities and towns, failing 
to pay their hospital bills, are charged to those cities and 
towns wherein they have settlements. 

Applicants who have no legal settlement in the Common- 
wealth are accepted and charged to the state, providing 
they are not physically able to travel to the State Hospital 
at Tewksbury. If they are able to undertake the journey, 
we are compelled to reject them as free patients.

Many unsettled cases apply for treatment each year, 
who have absolutely no claim on Worcester. When re- 
fused admission as free patients, they cannot understand 
the reason for their rejection and are likely to resent it, fre- 
quently appealing to influential outside friends. 

Admission op Patients at Night 

Some provision should be made for patients admitted 
during the night hours. The arrival of a patient in a ward 
at night tends to disturb the patients already there. Since 
the night transfer ambulance was put on by the Police 
Department, the admissions after 8 o'clock in the evening 
have materially increased. Frequently patients put off 
coming to the Hospital until evening, because they do not 
like to have the police ambulance call at their homes in the 
daytime. This, under the present conditions, is unfair to 
the hospital and to the patients.

Training School for Nurses 

The number of graduates this year was 43, while in 1916 
there were 39. There were 60 probationers received this 
vear, compared with 80 last year, of this number 44 have 
been accepted. 

There are now connected with the school: 

Superintendent of nurses 1 

AsBistant Superintendent of nurses 1 

Night Supenntendent of nurses 2 

Instructor of probationers 1 

Emergency assistants 2 

Instructor of male nurses 1 

Maternity supervisor 1

Probationers 27 

168 

The average cost to the Hospital for each nurse in the 
Training School was $1,778, as compared with $1,333 a day 
last year. Therefore the cost of training a nurse for three 
years, which is the duration of the prescribed course, is about 
$1,900. 

Doctors Denning and Talbot have continued the practical 
lectures and quizzes on obstetrical nursing. 

The lectures of Dr. Hunt on bacteriology and Dr. Lincoln 
on chemistry have been repeated for the instruction of each 
class. 

During the year the Superintendent of Nurses and her 
assistants have held 575 recitations and given 690 demon- 
strations. 

The number of applications received this year from nurses 
desiring to enter the school was 273, compared with 308 in 
1916. Of this number 96 have been accepted as candidates 
for admission and their names placed on file.

The Thayer Fund for Nurses, so generously donated, 
still continues to give ''comfort and pleasure" to the nurses. 
The "Home" is frequently the scene of much enjoyment, 
and many dainty lunches have been provided from this 
fund. 

Kindergarten Course 

Mrs. Mary H. Barker, Director of Kindergartens of the 
public schools, has continued her lectures as usual. 

The observation of kindergarten methods in the various 
schools was continued as in previous years, and our nurses 
continue to enjoy this part of their course and find it very 
helpful. 

Mock Operations 

The method of training nurses in surgical detail and tech- 
nique, by means of mock operations and other demonstra- 
tions, has been continued along the same lines as in previous 
years, with items of interest added to make the course still 
more interesting to the pupil nurses. We find this course 
very practical and necessary before the nurse is allowed to 
take her training in the operating room. 

We are under obligation to Dr. L. F. Woodward, who has 
made this course especially interesting. 

Dr. Woodward has also added to the scope and subject 
matter of the lectures which he has annually given to the 
City Hospital nurses. 

Doctors Trowbridge and Wheeler have also given addi- 
tional lectures to the nurses on surgical technique. To 
Doctors Berry, Getchell, Harrower, Baker and Greene and 
those other physicians of Worcester who have given time 
and painstaking preparation to their lectures for the City 
Hospital nurses, we continue appreciative and grateful. 

Additional Course in Dietetics 

Additional instruction in the preparation of diets for the 
sick under the instruction of Miss Kehoe, Hospital Dieti- 
tian, will be given advanced student nurses. 

Male Nurses 

For several years Worcester City Hospital has offered a 
two years' course of training for men nurses which will be 
continued the coming year. Men student nurses are not 
trained to care for women and children or to become ex- 
perts in the diet kitchen, but, excepting the maternity serv- 
ice, the children's service and the Isolation Hospital where 
the patients are largely children, the lectures and instruc- 
tions are similar to those given women nurses. For a

broader discussion of the male nurse problem, those inter- 
ested are referred to City Hospital report for 1909 and 1910, 
in which is printed a report of the Training School Commit- 
tee of the Trustees covering this subject. 

Obligations 

The hospital has been the recipient of a large number 
of donations such as books, magazines, newspapers, pictures, 
toys, flowers, Christmas presents for the children, etc. A 
list of these, together with the name of the donors, is pub- 
lished in another part of this report. The gifts, though 
usually inexpensive have added much to the conifort and 
pleasure of the hospital patients, particularly the children. 

Different church choirs have sung for the patients a few 
Sunday afternoons, which has been greatly enjoyed. 

The Worcester Employment Society did a large amount of 
sewing for the Hospital during the year. 

The clergymen of the city have responded cheerfully 
and promptly to the numerous calls sent out by the Hospital. 
We are under obligations to them for much valuable assist- 
ance. 

The services rendered the hospital by its staff, officers 
and employees during the past twelve months have been 
fully up to the standard of former years.

COST STATEMENTS 

DECEMBER 12, 1917 



CooLEY & Marvin Co., 
Tremont Building, Boston, Mass. 

December 12, 1917. 
To the Trustees of Worcester City Hospital, Worcester, Massa- 
chusetts: 

Dear Sirs: — In accordance with instructions, we have pre- 
pared statements of the total cost of the operations of the 
Worcester City Hospital for the fiscal year ended November 
30, 1917, together with statements showing the results of 
apportioning such costs for the various departmental 
functions of the hospital. The results of this apportionment 
locate all of the costs of the year to some such function of 
the hospital. 

We submit herewith two exhibits and nine schedules as 
listed hereinafter. These statements have been prepared 
from data as shown by the books and records of the hospital 
without fiuther verification other than ascertaining that the 
statistics presented were correctly represented in the general 
ledger and that the balance sheet, after making the neces- 
sary entries distributing the costs of the year, was in ac- 
cordance with the controlling records of the City Auditor 
of Worcester as at November 30, 1917. Other statistical 
records of the hospital as maintained throughout the year 
have been used as bases in apportioning the cost of opera- 
tions to the various departmental divisions as shown in 
the accompanying exhibits and schedules. 
Very truly yours, 

CooLEY & Marvin Co.

REPORT OF THE PATHOLOGICAL 
DEPARTMENT 

During the past year the work of the laboratory has 
been actively carried on in the usual chemical, bacteriological 
and pathological divisions. 

The statistical list of the different lines of laboratory 
investigations is detailed below: 

Surgical specimens, histological diagnosis 1,635 

Bacteriological cultures, organism identified 778 

Blood cultures 39 

Bacterial counts of milk 315 

Bacterial vaccines made and standardized 24 

Salvananized blood serum for spinal injection 39 

Wassermann tests for gyphilis I>788 

Complement fixation tests 80 

Wassermann test of spinal fluid 96 

Spinal fluid examination by culture 85 

Crlobulin test 66 

Post mortem examinations (including medico-legal) 60 

In addition to the above list many special examinations 
have been made of stools and urines for typhoid bacilli, 
animal inoculations to determine the nature of infections, 
colloidal eold test and cell counts of spinal fluids. 

The laboratory is well equipped for the rapid diagnosis 
of syphilis by the dark field illumination, by the staining of 
smears and by staining Treponema in tissue. The examin- 
ations for gonorrhoeal infection are made by the usual 
smears, by culture and by the complement fixation test. 

Examinations are being made to differentiate the types 
of the pneumococcus as they occur in pneumonia, so that 
patients may receive specific treatment. 

Serological Investigation 

The laboratory has continued its serological work along 
the lines of the past few years. In addition to the regular 
hospital work the Wassermann test and complement fixa- 
tion test for gonorrhoea have been done for the Worcester 
Health Department. We feel more strongly than ever that 
these valuable tests should be used more extensively by the 
hospital and by the physicians throughout the city. 

Recommendations 

We would again respectfully call the attention of the 
Board of Trustees to the following suggestions, which were 
incorporated in the last annual report:

514 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. [48 

(1) That a Pathological Fund be established to increase 
the usefulness of the laboratory in the diagnosis and treat- 
ment of disease. Furthermore, it would make possible the 
encouragement of undertaking various lines of research work. 
Many important discoveries in medicine have been made 
outside of large medical centres. The fund could be secured 
if the possibilities of its great value should be called to the 
attention of the citizens of Worcester. 

(2) That patients occupying private rooms be charged 
a moderate fee for the laboratory examinations. This cus- 
tom prevails in many hospitals. 

(3) That as soon as possible a Pathological House Officer 
be appointed to the laboratory staff, and if necessary, be 
paid a moderate salary; such a worker would more inti- 
mately connect the laboratory with the various depart- 
ments of the hospital. 

(4) That a Resident Pathologist be employed who shall 
give his entire time to this laboratory. 

We again desire to recognize the faithful work and 
enthusiasm of our laboratory assistant. Miss Mills. Through- 
out the year her work, as formerly, has been of the greatest 
value to the hospital. 

Miss Astrid Gustafson and Miss Mildred Hardy have 
rendered valuable assistance in carrying on the routine work 
of the laboratory. 

In July, 1917, Dr. Edward B. Bigelow, Assistant Pathol- 
ogist, enlisted in the medical corps of the army. He is now 
a major stationed at Camp Cody, New Mexico, being chief 
medical officer of that cantonment. The loss of his service 
in this laboratory has been keenly felt, for throughout his 
connection in this department his work has been of unusual 
merit. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FREDERICK H. BAKER, M. D., 

Pathologist. 
ERNEST L. HUNT, M. D., 

Assistant Pathologist.

REPORT OF THE ROENTGEN DEPARTMENT 



This department may now claim to have attained a 
standard of reasonable efficiency. In April the much desired 
centralization of its work was brought about by the taking 
over of a room in the administration building, near the 
Roentgen operating room. Here were installed a dark room 
with a three compartment developing tank; shelves sufficient 
for the filing of at least a year's plates; and everything else 
pertaining to the clerical side of the work. As a result of 
these changes, serial examinations of the gastro-intestinal 
tract can for the first time be properly carried out; a call 
for a plate three months old does not necessitate a trip to 
the Ward K attic; the arrival of a late case for examination 
does not upset all the darkroom routine; and in general the 
whole work of the department is carried on at an agreeably 
lessened level of nervous tension. Credit for much of the 
increased smoothness of the routine is due to the careful 
and efficient work of Miss Catherine Devlin, the technician, 
who now does the great bulk of the technical work. Drs. 
MacKay and Crofton have also rendered much appreciated 
assistance by doing work outside of the regular hours for 
the department 

The departure of Dr. George, who joined the colors 
early in June, threw some additional work upon the house 
force; the amount of work done is steadily increasing, but 
with the improved facilities it is readily taken care of. 

The Roentgen apparatus, after a serious breakdown in 
September, which necessitated complete overhauling, is 
working well; an overhead trolley system for the lead wires 
adds to its efficiency. Up-to-date treatment work, however, 
cannot be done until a Coolidge tube is installed. This 
will require in addition a ray-proof booth for the operator. 
Respectfully submitted, 

PHILIP H. COOK, 

Roentgenologist.

ADMISSION OF PATIENTS, ETC. 

Application for the admission of patients should be noiade 
to the Superintendent at the Hospital on each day of the 
week (Simdays excepted) between 9 a. m. and 4 p. m. 

Whenever able the patient should apply in person. 
When not able to appear in person, application may be 
made by a friend. 

Persons carried to the hospital from the place of accident 
are admitted immediately and at all hours. 

No person having any contagious disease can be admitted 
and no person can be admitted whose case is judged to be 
incurable, unless temporarily, for urgent symptoms which 
are deemed capable of being relieved. 

The ordinary charge per week for accommodations in 
the wards is $12, which includes medical and sm^gical 
attendance, together with medicine, nursing and washing. 
Persons who are unable to pay, and whose place of le^ 
settlement is Worcester, are admitted as free patients; all 
other free patients are charged to the state, or to the towns 
where they belong. Patients in private rooms are charged 
$17.50 or more per week, according to the requirements 
of the case.

67] CITY HOSPITAL. 533 

No person shall visit any part of the premises^ except on 
business, or at such times as may be fixed for the reception 
of visitors, without the permission of the Superintendent, 
or some of the Trustees. 

Visitors to the patients will be admitted Sundays, Tues- 
days, Thursdays and Saturdays between 3 and 4 o'clock 
p. m.; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 6.45 
and 7.30 o'clock p. m. 

No ward patient shall receive more than two visitors 
on the same day. In all cases, however, the Trustees or 
Superintendent may exercise discretionary power as to 
excluding or admitting visitors. 

All patients in the Knowles Maternity may receive one 
visitor each day after confinement day. Visits are to be 
limited to one-half hour during the first five days after 
confinement, and to one hour thereafter. No male visitors 
other than husband, father or brother will be admitted with- 
out a special permit from the Superintendent. 

In admitting patients to the out-patient department on 
Chandler Street each applicant is questioned carefully as 
to his or her ability to pay. Only those are admitted who 
cannot afford to pay a physician for his services. In ques- 
tioning applicants as to their ability and desire to pay for 
services, no fixed rules are followed, but the desire for inde- 
pendence and self-reliance are stimulated, so that many 
who come for free treatment volunteer to go to physicians 
outside the hospital rather than accept charity. 

In case of sudden sickness or recent accident relief is 
given immediately without preliminary investigation. The 
applicant is always given the benefit of any doubt. 

No visitor shall be allowed to give any article of food or 
drink to a patient unless by permission of the nurse, and 
any article sent to the patient shall be left with the Super- 
intendent of Nurses.

of nursing. The course has now been extended to three 
years. The school is a department of the City Hospital, 
which contains 360 beds for patients, and has a large, 
active and varied service, treating annually in all its de- 
partments from 14,000 to 15,000 patients, and affording 
exceptional advantages for obstetrical training. In addition 
to this service, and as part of the course, the Isolation 
Hospital offers to all our nurses the opportunity of practical 
experience in the care of contagious diseases. 

Those wishing to receive this course of instruction must 
apply by letter or personally to the Superintendent. Letters 
of application should contain a brief personal history with 
the names and addresses of two responsible persons, not 
relatives, to whom the applicant has been known for a 
number of years, and a statement from a physician certi- 
fying to sound health and unimpaired faculties. Pupils 
are required to have been successfully vaccinated within 
two years. Applicants are reminded that a thorough Eng- 
lish education is essential, and that women of superior edu- 
cation and cultivation will be preferred. The acceptable 
age for candidates is between twenty-one and thirty years. 
They must be of average height and weight and of strong 
physique. 

Applications to enter this school (which must be made in 
writing on blanks which are furnished on request) are 
placed on file as received. Approved candidates will re- 
ceive due notice and printed instructions as to necessary 
preparation for coming. Classes are formed every four 
months. A certain number of names are kept on an "emer- 
gency list," and these candidates may be sent for on short 
notice. The period of probation is six months, during which 
time pupils are examined as to their education, physical 
strength, endurance, adaptability to the work, powers of 
observation, judgment, etc. On the satisfactory comple- 
tion of two months' probation they assume the uniform of

the school. At the end of six months they are examined 
upon the work gone over, and if this examination and their 
records are both satisfactory, they are allowed to continue, 
and they sign an agreement to conform to all the require- 
ments imposed upon the pupils, if not, they are dropped. 
The same is true as to the examinations at the end of the 
first and second years. 

The instruction comprises, during the first three or four 
months, a preliminary training in the elementary principles 
of nursing. Daily demonstrations and practice lessons are 
given in the classroom and nurses' laboratory. 

Bedside clinical instruction and special lectures are 
included in the preparatory course. 

The hours off duty are especially arranged for the pre- 
paratory course. During the remainder of the course two or 
three hours weekly are allotted for class work, as the schedule 
may require. 

The pupils do the work of nursing in the hospital, and in 
return they receive their board, and laundry, and the in- 
struction of the school; and after the first month of proba- 
tion an allowance of $6.00 per month to provide uniforms 
and textbooks. 

Should a pupil be ill, she is cared for without charge, but 
is required to make up time lost. In addition to the daily 
time, a part of Sunday and one afternoon weekly are allowed 
for rest and recreation. A vacation of two weeks is allowed 
the first year, and three weeks the second and third years. 

Constant effort is directed towards the improvement of 
the curriculum by the introduction of new educational 
features, but radical departures from the plan in vogue in 
the past have for the most part been avoided. Among the 
more recent modifications of the system of teaching are the 
concentration of the purely theoretical work into the first 
year of the course, with a great deal of personal instruction 
during this important period, a very considerable increase 
in laboratory work, and bedside instruction when suitable 
illustrative cases are obtainable. A well-qualified graduate 
nurse instructs the probationers and supervises their ward 
work during the first four months, spending five or six hours 
daily with them, and a considerable part of the remainder 
of her day is occupied preparing systematically for the next 
day^s work in order that the pupil may get the most in- 
struction with the least expenditure of time and energy. A 
well-equipped laboratory is now at the disposal of the 
school, and is largely for demonstration work. 

Special attention is given to training nurses in surgical 
detail and technique by means of mock operations and

other demonstrations. Not until after they have been 
thoroughly instructed in this work are they allowed to assist 
in the operating rooms. 

The course of training in the nursing of contagious diseases 
varies from ten to twelve weeks. 

In 1906 arrangements were made whereby a short course 
in kindergarten methods was offered as part of the school cur- 
riculum^ and Mrs. Mary H. Barker, director of the kinder- 
gartens of the public schools, kindly consented to give a 
short course of lectures. These very instructive lectures are 
supplemented by the observation of practical work in the 
kindergartens of the city. We believe that the nurse who 
has taken this course is better qualified to care for and to 
entertain children than she would otherwise have been. 

Nurses are subject in all particulars to the rules of the 
hospital and the discipline of the school. They are under 
the authority of the superintendent of the hospital and 
the superintendent of nurses, who have full power to decide 
as to the propriety of retaining or rejecting a candidate on 
probation. Pupils will not be allowed during their course of 
instruction to nurse sick relatives at home, or to absent 
themselves for any other personal reasons. Absences are 
not allowed except for extreme cause. 

Candidates, when called, are expected to report promptly 
and to bring with them the means of returning to their 
homes should they not successfully pass their probationary 
term. Any change of plan or of address on the part of the 
candidate whose name is on the waiting list should be 
immediately reported to the superintendent of the Training 
School. 

When the full term of three years is ended and the final 
examinations have been successfully passed, the nurses thus 
trained will receive the diploma of the school, and are allowed 
to wear the badge of the school.

OUTLINE OF CLINICAL COURSE 

Given in 1917 by Dr. Joseph C. Lovett 

The course to be given this year will be conducted along the same general 
lines as were followed last year. As before, the general idea is not in any way 
to make a diagnostidan of the nurse, but to increase her efficiency as an 
assistant by imi>re6sing constantly upon her how important, both to the doc- 
tor and his patient, does the prompt and intelligent observation of certain 
phenomena often become. 

To secure this desirable object the dass is divided into two small sections 
of six or eight, and a series of short clinics (averaging one hour each) given 
throughout the year. In these clinics the important phenomena of the various 
common diseases are demonstrated, the nurses making personal examination 
of the patients shown, and frequently bdng called upon to criticise the accu- 
racy of each other's observation. Free discussion of each case is encouraged, 
aU doubtful points being referred to the instructor for settlement. From tune 
to time, during the course, a number of more or less unimportant phenomena 
are introducea, both to stunulate interest and bring into marked contrast 
conditions of greater signiiicance. 

It may be deducted from the above explanation that the aim constantly borne 
in mind is to give the pupil-nurse a good working knowledge of: 

How to observe. 

What to observe. 

How to make practical use of her observation.

City Hospital, and to no use or purpose other than that whatsoever. While

limitation or condition as to the manner of its use, still I shoiud prefer to see 
it set apart as a separate fund, and the income thereof applied only to the 
support and maintenance of said hospital, if such a course shall commend itse&f 
to the wisdom of those having it in charge. (Extraet from wiU,)

8] ' PARK COMMISSIONERS. 575 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of Worcester: — 

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit, herewith, the 
report of the Parks and Recreation Commission for the 
year 1917. This is the first annual report of this board. 

This board came into being on May 15th, 1917 and took 
over the work of the board of Park Commissioners and the 
Playground Commission, which were abolished in pur- 
suance of an Act of the Legislature contained in Chapter 
204 of the Acts of 1917. 

It is no reflection on the former boards, of which this 
board is, in effect, a consolidation, to say that the wisdom 
of the consolidation has been amply demonstrated in the 
seven months in which this board has been in existence. 
There has been more work done on the Park and Play- 
ground system this year than before in a single year. The 
grounds and the buildings have been put into better condi- 
tion than they have been for a long while. ElSiciency is 
being put into the several departments and the business 
management of Mr. Holland, our director, is becoming 
clearly manifest. 

Green Hill mansion has had the special attention of the 
Commission. The exterior of the mansion, with building, 
sheds and stables, has been painted, tin roofs and gutters 
have been repaired, new ceilings have been put into the 
hall, custodian's office, and in two rest rooms, and other 
necessary work done on the interior of the building. Green 
Hill mansion to-day is in a better condition than it was 
when it was taken over by the city or has been at any 
time since it has been in the city's possession. 

East Park, being on the highway through Worcester, 
between Boston and New York, has not been creditable 
in appearance to a city of the standing of Worcester. The 
erection of 560 feet of iron fence planned by the old board 
of Park Commissioners, which we have erected at a cost of 
$1,400.00, the reshingling and painting of all buildings on 
the Park, the planting of flowers and shrubs, and a general 
tidying up, has made a noticeable improvement. 

A proper wading pool, with a two foot concrete wall the 
entire distance around it, has been built at Crompton Park. 
This will do away with the unfortunate condition existing 
in this Park in the past where the wash from the oiled 
streets and surface water from the entire Park formerly ran 
into the wading pool. This sediment settling in the bottom 
of the pool has been anything but sanitary for the thousands 
of children using that pool during the summer. 

The installing of 378 feet of 8-inch sewer pipe, four catch

576 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72. [4 

basins with the proper sewer connections, will give much 
better drainage and do away with the long delay in using 
the athletic fields in this much congested portion of the 
city after a heavy rain. 

Three hundred and ninety-eight feet of iron fence has 
been erected on the Cambridge Street side of the South 
Worcester playground, which has added greatly to the 
appearance of the field as well as a protection to the people 
who have had many narrow escapes in running from this 
playground into the street which has a large automobile 
tralEc. 

A modern wading pool with a concrete wall has been con- 
structed at University Park, doing away with the unsanitary 
condition which formerly prevailed at the swimming pool 
in this Park, from which there formerly had been many 
complaints. 

A hot water heating plant has been installed in the recrea- 
tion building at Beaver Brook. It gives excellent satisfac- 
tion and makes the building comfortable for public uses as a 
community center. 

The buildings in Institute Park, which were in bad condi- 
tion, have been repaired, reshingled, and painted; in fact 
Eractically every building on the parks and playgrounds has 
een painted this year, some of which have not received 
this attention for over ten years. 

The Zoo at Lake Park has been put in better condition by 
having new yards with proper wire fencing, which is an 
improvement both in appearance and for safety, and water 
connections have been made to the yards, adding both to the 
comfort of the animals and lessening the burdens of the care- 
takers. 

On many of the parks and playgrounds there has been a 
general planting of shrubs and bulbs which will be apparent 
in the beautifying of these places next year. 

These few instances will serve to show the character of the 
activities of the department in maintenance and construc- 
tion work this year. 

The most important work which should be undertaken 
for the coming year, outside of maintenance, is the building 
of new sanit^ lavatories in our parks and playgrounds. 
It is a disgrace to the city of Worcester that on some of our 
parks there is slight provision made for toilets of any kind, 
and on the few parks where we have sanitary lavatories 
they are in bad condition both in materials and construction. 
These buildings should be removed and replaced with 
better and more modem appliances. Where there are not 
sanitary lavatories they should be built. Our public parks

and playgrounds are being used more and more each year 
by the people and it is imperative that there be proper sani- 
tary conveniences. 

The stone tower at Institute Park is closed to the public 
as it is so badly in need of repair as to be a danger. This 
tower could be put in condition at a cost of about $800.00, 
which must be done at once or otherwise the structure will 
be a ruin. The bridge connecting the small Island at In- 
stitute Park is also closed to the public as dangerous. 
The underpinnings of one of the stone piers has settled and 
is about to topple over and unless this work is done this 
spring it will entail a much greatly increased cost. 

The old brick dwelling house at Burncoat Park is a 
splendid type of the old Colonial house. The interior should 
be put in repair and the house either rented or fitted up as a 
museum or for other city purposes. 

The same should be done with the old farmhouse at 
Boynton Park which now has the windows and doors 
boarded up. The entire place has the appearance of an 
abandoned farm. In this condition it is of no use. With a 
few repairs this house could be used in the summertime 
by some charitable organization doing Fresh Air work among 
the tired mothers and the ill-nurtured children and enough 
revenue obtained for at least the upkeep of the buildings. 

The shelter at Vernon Hill playground has never had 
proper sewer connections. The present cesspool should 
be done away with. It is hoped this can be done this year. 
Other work is necessary at Vernon Hill, both for the develop- 
ment and the beautif 3dng of this splendid tract of land which 
provides park and recreation features for a large territory. 

A combination wading and swimming pool has been 
recommended for South Worcester playground. During 
the summer the total average attendance of this playground 
was 419. This refers to children only and not to the large 
numbers of grownups who used this playground for recrea- 
tion purposes. Crompton Park is the only playground in 
the city showing a larger daily attendance. In the absence 
of shade trees this playground should by all means have a 
place where the children could romp and splash in the hot 
weather, both for their own enjoyment and for sanitary 
effect. 

Besides the parks there were thirteen playgrounds and two 
swimming beaches in use diuing the season of 1917. The 
average attendance on the playgrounds of children was 
4,955; on the swimming beaches, 1,754. The entire enroll- 
ment on playgrounds and swimming beaches was 6,949. 
The largest attendance on the two swimming beaches was

578 CITY DOCUMENT— NO. 72, [6 

Thursday, August 20th, when there were 6,820 in the water 
that day. The largest attendance on playgrounds on any 
one day was on Wednesday, August 8th, with an attendance 
of 6,494. 

The foresty work has been well carried on this year and 
proper attention paid to this important work for beautify- 
ing the city and for the comfort of its people. Sixty acres of 
parks and playground land were used for garden purposes by 
the people of the city. Excellent results in these gardens 
were obtained. The lots varied in size from 2,000 to 4,000 
feet. The popularity of the gardens is evidenced by the 
inquiries for the same reservations for another year. 

Slight increases in wages to most of the employees of the 
department have been necessary and just. This additional 
expense should not be overlooked in making the appro- 
priation of the department. Increases in labor alone will 
amount to $4,000 more than last year. 

The department has under its control the two bathing 
beaches, one at Indian Lake and the other at Bell Pond, 
where it maintains bathhouses for both men and women, 
at which places it employs men and women instructors in 
swimming. It also maintains a bathing beach at Lake 
Park, at Lake Quinsigamond. There is a demand that 
there should be an instructor at that point which we will 
consider for next year. 

This department does not control the bathhouses of the 
city for men and women between the causeway and Regatta 
Point. These bathhouses are under the control of the 
Board of Health. They were put under the control of that 
board at the time they were established because there was 
no other body at that time that could properly take care of 
them or to whom they could naturally be assigned. The 
Board of Health desires that the Parks and Recreation Board 
take over these bathhouses as they can be administered 
better by this department charged with that special form 
of work than they can by the Board of Health to whom 
they are naturally a burden. 

This department believes these bathhouses should come 
under its control and recommends to your Honorable Body 
that such transfer be made. 

Respectfully submitted,

GEORGE F. BOOTH, Chairman.

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit my annual 
report for the fiscal year ending November 30th, 1917. 

During the year, the following improvements have been 
made in the service: 

1. The establishment of Precinct Four at 44 Grove Street 
on March 22, 1917. 

2. The appointment of twenty additional patrolmen, and 
two policewomen. 

3. Contracts made for modern police signals at Precincts 
One and Four. 

4. Placing of twenty-five additional "Silent Police" 
traffic signals at intersecting streets. 

5. The purchase of a new engine for motorboat at Lake 
Quinsigamond. 

I would recommend the following improvements for the 
year 1918: 

1. The purchase of two patrol wagons to replace two 
which were bought in 1911 and which are becoming expen- 
sive to maintain in the service. 

2. The addition of twenty patrolmen to better police 
outlying districts and extend the traffic zone. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE H. HILL, 
Chief of Police.

KEPOKT OF TKUSTEES OF INDEPENDENT 
INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS 



To the Honorable City Council of the City of Worcester: 

In accordance with Section III of the ordinance relative 
to the Independent Industrial Schools, we have the honor 
to submit the following report for the year ending Novem- 
ber 30/ 1917. 

The Trade Schools have followed during the past year the 
same general plan as in previous years, with such modifica- 
tions in details as would best meet changed conditions. 
The principles upon which the schools were founded have 
proved sound after several years' experience and continue 
to meet the approval of the Trustees and of those engaged 
in educational work who have given close study to in- 
dustrial or trade training. 

Comparatively little equipment has been added the past 
year, as prices have been high, deliveries on machines and 
apparatus difficult to obtain, and appropriations limited. 
We hope that as soon as conditions shall have become more 
normal, money may be available to provide additional 
equipment for the trades now being taught, as well as for 
others which would prove of great benefit to Worcester 
boys and girls. 

Because the appropriations for 1917 were much less than 
our estimates of expenses, the Trustees decided early in 
the year to give up the summer session at both the Boys 
and Girls Schools, so that no regular sessions were held 
during either July or August; had we been able to foresee 
the needs created by the entrance of this country into war 
with Germany, different action would have been taken, and 
it is expected that summer courses will be held during the 
coming year. The machinery and equipment of the shop 
at the Boys School can be used to excellent advantage in 
producing material for Government requirements, and the 
work of the Girls School will be most helpful for the needs 
of the Red Cross and kindred work, in addition to being 
of value to the pupils themselves. 

The necessity of providing new and larger accommoda- 
tions for the Girls School was referred to in our last year's 
report, and the Trustees are deeply appreciative of the ap- 
propriation of $65,000 made by the City Council on April 9,

1917, towards the purchase of a site for a new Girls Trade 
School Building. After a careful study and consideration 
of many possible sites, the Trustees agreed unanimously 
on the property on the northwest corner of High and 
Chatham Streets, comprising two lots, viz: — the Rogers or 
Kennedy estate containing about 23,829 sq. ft. and the 
Aldrich property of 23,700 sq. ft. The combined area of 
47,529 sq. ft. is open to streets on three sides, with a frontage 
of 201 ft. on Chatham St., 215 ft. on High Street and 229 
feet on Aldrich Place. Many citizens have expressed most 
hearty approval of the site chosen. . 

The Rogers or Kennedy property was taken by the City 
Council July 23, 1917, and Aldrich property October 29, 
1917. 

Very soon after the site had been secured, a most gener- 
ous proposition was made to the city by one of its loyal and 
public spirited citizens, Mr. David H. Fanning, placing at 
its disposal the sum of $100,000 toward the erection of the 
building for the Girls School. The offer of Mr. Fanning 
and the action of the City Council thereon on November 
26th, were as follows: 

DAVID H. FANNING having presented the City of Worcester $100,000 
to aid in the erection of a permanent home for the Trade School for Girls, 
we acknowledge with gratitude his gift and commend the public spirit 
which prompted it. It is by such enduring evidences of interest in a City|s 
welfare that it is given distinction. Fortunately, Worcester's many public 
institutions show that it has not lacked in benefactors. 

In selecting the Trade School for Girls as the object of his generosity, we 
recognize in Mr. Fanning's choice an especial fitness. Women in industry 
have contributed much to his business success, and he has done much for 
their well-being. In helping to better equip the girls of to-day for their tasks 
of tomorrow Mr. Fanning is crowning his long life of usefulness in an ap- 
propriate way that deserves the gratitude of all our people. 

WHEREFORE be it ORDERED: that the City Council of the City of 
Worcester hereby accepts the gift of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000), 
to be applied towards the erection, construction and eqmpment of a Trade 
School for Girls, in accordance with the communication of David H. Fanning, 
dated November 7, 1917, said communication being in the following form, 
to wit: 

"Worcester, Mass., November 7, 1917. 

To Mayor Pehr G. Holmes, 
and the City Council, 
of Worcester. 

Sirs:— 

Whereas the city of Worcester is maintaining as one of its institutions an 
Industrial School, known as the Trade School for Girls and whereas I desire 
to contribute financial assistance to aid and increase the facilities and pur- 
poses of said school, I hereby submit the following proposition: 

That I will give to the City of Worcester the sum of One Hundred Thousand 
Dollars ($100,000) to be applied towards the erection, construction and 
equipment of a suitable bmlding by the City, for the purposes of said School.

This proposition and payment of said gift is made subject however, and 
upon the express condition that said school shall be named and known as 
the "David Hale Fanning Trade School for Girls," the name to appear in 
suitable form over the main entrance to the school building. 

Upon the formal acceptance by the City of Worcester of said gift upon 
said condition, said gift shall then be payable not later than the fint day of 
March nineteen hun(&ed and eighteen. 

Respectfully yours, 

David H. Fanning."

Order adopted by a rising vote.

W. Henry Towne, Clerk. 
In Common Council, 

November 26, 1917. 
Concurred by a rising vote. 

S. Hamilton Cob, Clerk. 
Approved, November 28, 1917. Peer G. Holbces, Mayor. 

A copy. Attest: W. Henry Towne, City Clerk. 

The Trustees have endeavored to express to Mr. Fanning 
in fitting terms their heartfelt appreciation of his gift. The 
amount given by. Mr. Fanning will no doubt be supplement- 
ed by an appropriation by the City Council to enable the 
Trustees to erect a building large enough for our needs, 
which shall be dignified and impressive, and in every way 
worthy the name of its generous benefactor. 

In an estimate for expenses for the coming year we 
have included an item of $5,000 to cover the preliminary 
expenses of plans for the new building, and we trust that 
this amount will be placed at our disposal at an early date, 
so that mature consideration can be given to their prepara- 
tion. Whether it will seem advisable to begin the con- 
struction work on the new building, in view of the present 
crisis in national affairs and the high cost of materials and 
labor, can only be determined later. The lease of the 
property at 2 State Street, now used by the Girls School 
has been extended to July 1, 1919. 

The house on the Rogers property proved to be in good 
condition so it has been wired for electricity by the boys in 
the electrical classes of the Boys School and made available 
for afternoon and evening classes in food conservation, 
cooking, sewing, etc. By its use we will relieve the crowded 
condition of the State Street Building. The Aldrich house 
is rented so it will bring some return in revenue to the 
city. 

The work of the home making department has been con- 
tinued at 68 Grove Street and excellent work in training 
girls in the care and duties of the home is being done. Dur-

ing the past year the front tenement on the second floor 
has been renovated and refitted and is now in excellent 
condition. Nearly all of this work has been done by pupils 
in various departments of the Boys School, thus giving 
them excellent practice in their respective trades and at 
the same time greatly lessening the expenses of remodeling. 
Previous to this year, the graduating exercises of both 
the Boys and Girls Schools had been held jointly, but as the 
classes in 1917 were larger than before, and the seating 
capacity of our hall would allow but very few tickets for 
the friends of the graduates if joint exercises were held, 
separate programmes were arranged for the two schools. 
The graduating exercises of the Bojrs School were held in 
Higgins Hall on Tuesday evening, June 26th, 1917, and 
those of the Girls School in the same place on Thursday 
evening, June 28th. 

The programmes and list of graduates were as follows:

Reimbursement from the State 

During 1917 the city of Worcester received from the 
state the sum of $24,429.88 for the Boys School account, 
and $13,566.12 for the Girls School account, making a 
total of $37,995.50; this being one-half the net maintenance 
expenses of both schools for the year ending September 
1st, 1916. 

During 1918 the city should receive from the state 
$24,735.53 on account of the Boys School, and $13,169.73

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE BOYS TRADE 

SCHOOL 

In reviewing the work of the past year, it is very gratify- 
ing to note, notwithstanding the verv numerous and un- 
usual conditions which exist, the satisfactory results of our 
efforts in all departments of our school. While our num- 
bers are less than last year, yet they are larger than might 
have been anticipated in the midst of so great business 
prosperity and the call for young men for national service. 
We have not suffered, however, so great a diminution in 
numbers as have many schools of a similar type. The 
exceptional opportunities offered at our institution have 
doubtless helped us to maintain so creditable a registration. 

As the war continues, there is a constantly increasing 
demand for young men trained for industrial work. Many 
of our pupils have been obliged to leave school because of 
other members of their families being called to the colors, 
others have been attracted by the unusually large com- 
pensation offered, and many have enlisted in the service of 
the Government. Our service flag at this time contains 
sixty-seven stars, and this number will undoubtedly increase, 
until the tide of events has turned. With the thorough 
training they have received at the school, we fed confident 
that those who have enlisted will render commendable 
service to their country. With the return of normal con- 
ditions we hope there will come the beginning of a reconstruc- 
tion period in educational effort. 

The success of these graduates encourages us to believe

that the thorough and practical courses of shop training and 
correlated work we offer will fit any ambitious young man to 
take a creditable part in the industrial world. 

The industrial opportunities open to our graduates at the 
present time are undoubtedly beyond anything heretofore 
offered and they have lost no time in talang advantage of 
them. The majority of the graduates, we are glad to state, 
have remained with the Worcester industries, where oppor- 
tunities are as good, if not better than in many outside 
places. 

The quality and quantity of products turned out during 
the past year have been very marked; all of these are of a 
commercial nature, which adds greatly to the efficiency of 
training. 

The necessary high standards of workmanship have been 
maintained to meet the requirements of our customers. This 
is an indispensable factor in the proper training of the boys, 
since in this way they are trained under practical commercial 
conditions, which they will be prepared to meet upon enter- 
ing the industries. 

A considerable portion of our equipment which has been 
completed by various departments of the school forms a 
very substantial exhibit oi the school product, and is much 
admired by the numerous visitors. 

At the opening of the classes for the year 1917-1918 there 
were 369 applicants for admission. The number attending 
was 342. 

The year 1916-1917 opened with a total of 420 applicants, 
and the number attending was 382. The number this year 
is a trifle below that of last year. It is quite likely that 
during th
